My Pizza Garden - The Fennel Has Disappeared!
It is super hot today ... and what happened to my fennel? When I went outside to water this morning, my little patch of fennel is nowhere to be found. I think either the deer or the bunnies must have eaten it! On the plus side, the herbs are rockin' - the oregano is thick and full of gorgeous purple blossoms, the basil is very fragrant and healthy, and the parsley is delicious. (Why aren't the bunnies eating the parsley as they have in other years?) I pulled out two hot pepper plants, but the rest seem to be doing okay. I don't have any ripe tomatoes yet, but there are plenty of little green ones on the way. I can't wait for some ripe tomatoes - I have a recipe for a Caprese Pizza, and am just waiting for some fresh, homegrown tomatoes so that I can give it a try.
