Insalata Caprese with homegrown basil:

After our success with growing basil (despite our poor spacing of the seeds) we've decided to be brave and attempt to grow a few more things in our garden: zucchini, cucumbers, tomatos and green beans. Oh, and more basil, too (we're addicts). Any tips from garden pros out there? We're really winging it over here :-)

We're off to the Thursday flower market in Piazza della Repubblica in a bit. I'll be sure to take some photos to share with you all.
