garden update

I picked 6 large bags of cabbage and kale today. Nicole and I washed it and chopped it up. I'll keep it in the freezer for stir fries and soups. I still have another 6 bags to harvest. I need a bigger freezer. The daylilies began to bloom. I'll plant the plants I bought in Italy. They will take the place of all the cabbage and kale. Everyday I pick a big handful of ripe strawberries. I love my garden!

Things are a bit slow here due to an abnormal rainy season. But I'm sure it will pick up soon once this storm passes.
Nice to have an abundance of produce already.

We have had allot of rain too but cabbage and kale like that. Your garden looks really nice Shelley. It's only 10 times as big as mine (maybe more). I'm sure it's 10 times as much work too. I have a tone of weeds to pull. But I'm happy to actually have something to show for all this work. The potatoes are also doing great. Only one of my tomatoes has flowers so far. But the plants look good. I hope to be processing tomatoes all summer! The cucumbers keep dying. They need more sun that's for sure. And all the squash is small.

What an incredible blossom. I am not at all familiar with this plant, but it sounds like one I would like to get to know better.
