    great! be sure to watch the time and only cook them the 5 minutes -- don't want them mushy (unless you like them that way and then you can ignore my comment;->) my garden is not doing well as my puppy insists on destroying everything! the only thing she stays away from are the jalapeno and lemon balm!
