It has always been a dream for me to have my own garden so I can enjoy fresh and healthy (not to mention cheap!) produce during the summer. I will worry about the fact that I have a black thumb later (luckily my husband is great with plants)! For now, apartment living has limited me to “urban gardening.” My entire garden consists of 2 cherry tomato plants, basil, and rosemary. I just don’t have very much patio room and the available space does not get a good amount of sunlight throughout the day. This does not bring me down though, tomatoes and basil are all I need! My tomatoes still have a while before they start to come in but I just cut back my basil for the first time this season; with it, I made a deliciously easy vegan pesto.
- 1 cup basil*
- 1/4 cup walnuts
- 1/4 cup olive oil
- 1 clove garlic
- Sprinkling nutritional yeast (optional)
