Just a quick veggie patch update (on a super sunny afternoon). The back garden is doing well. Tomatoes are growing each day. Here is a close up of the Roma tomatoes: grow guys! grow! Peppers are coming along slowly.
On to the bounty from the front yard. This is the second giant batch of rainbow swiss chard, some of which will get used tonight, and the rest will travel to PA. (The first batch went to Meg). You will also notice that there are 4 rainbow carrots!!! My first carrots!!! 2 white, 1 orange and 1 purple. I can cross carrots of my Whole Foods list tonight. The beets are not ready yet. The radishes and lettuce that I threw down before we went on vacation are doing well.
Next, is this alien: kohlrabi. It is a fun word to say. He came in the CSA and I am super excited. I was checking them out at the King Street Market the other week. So I have a delicious plan for him this evening. Will share later.
Franklin isn't doing so well. A lot of his leaves are turning yellow and falling off. We'll see. He is getting a drink right now. Natural suggestions?
Finally, us. On vacation. In LA. For 5 delightful, relaxing days. We went hiking. We ate a lot...including some amazing vegan meals (more on that later). We laughed with wonderful friends while drinking delicious wine, gathered around a hand made table under an old avocado tree. We went to church together. Yes, it was that perfect. I can't wait for them to come out and visit us, but I also am looking forward to going back in the spring.
