  1. I am always amazed at what you are harvesting - the drought has taken it's toll here - even with watering from our big tanks

  6. What a whopper of a cabbage and your cauliflowers look way better than any I've seen at the supermarket. I'm really taken with the kohlrabi...are they easy to cultivate? I want to try growing the green/white type next year but am researching which one is best (tasting and disease resistant-wise).
