Cherry tomatoes, basil, and curious visitors!

A few weeks ago, my mother in law gave us two cherry tomato plants and a beautiful basil plant. The basil has grown incredibly tall and leafy, and we've had quite a few cute little 'maters!





Of course us humans aren't the only ones enjoying the crop; there's a little bee that comes to feast on the basil flowers every single day. The squirrels are mystified by the whole pot and they walk around it ever so sneakily, like this one in this poorly taken picture...

    Very healthy looking plants!! I am a huge fan of basil in the form of pesto sauce and also vegan green curry (which I always order at Vegan-Thai places.)
