holy is HOT!
we do not usually run our air conditioner much in the summer, only when a high dessert blister blows in.
well one has been here for two weeks and is showing no signs of departing.
that air conditioner has been running non-stop {almost} for days and days.

i believe my garden is ready to pull up roots and come into the house. 
not much out there is enjoying this heat wave with the exception of the basil.

i cut these down last week end to make pesto, cut them down where only the lowest leaves were left.
i read somewhere on blog land that when cutting basil to cut from the top not the bottom or you would be left with one ugly basil plant pretending to look like a palm tree. those left on bottom leaves would 
be the photosynthesis machine for the entire plant and help it grow fast and strong.
well it worked!
it is time to make more pesto.
do you have a favorite pesto recipe?
if so i would love to try it.
stay calm and stay cool.
