Marietta Daisies Garden Club
Recipe Corner: From Daisy to Daisies
A short story that began with working at the Marietta Middle School
It was out first monthly visit after the summer break.
The sky was generous with rainfall bringing forth bountiful harvest of
Sweet potatoes, Sweet and Thai basil and summer flowers buzzing with bees.
The basil was pulled to make way for the new planting of the bed with lettuce.
These plants towered 3 feet tall and 3 feet wide.
We divided the bounty between 2 of the Daisies.
One of us decided to replant and harvest later.
The other decided to make some Pomodoro Sauce packages for our first
Monday meeting of 2022/2023.
Here is the recipe for Daises that would like to try making at home.
