I has stuff growing....






Cabbages, for one. This is good cabbage! I use it in salads, shred it with carrots, and mix it with green cabbage in slaw. The green cabbage is more usefull, as the red seems to not be very appealing in all dishes. I don't know anyone who likes cabbage rolls from purple/red cabbage.


See the little violas there? I love to plant flowers in my vegetable garden. I plant them all year, until we finish the year with zinnias, planted in August or September.

I don't know what daffodil this is, but I don't care. I love them. The green things on the ground behind it/under it are weeds, I also don't know what they are. I am just pulling weeds like crazy. It seems awful early for this daffodil to bloom, but the jonquilla have bloomed already.
Last, but not least, I have Swiss chard, 'Bright Lights' growing! This is the pink, but we also have the brilliant yellow, pale green, and ruby red. I know it is edible, but I don't eat it. I just like to grow it because it is pretty. If anyone wanted it to eat, I would share. Just the stalks have the pretty colors. They look at home in the vegetable garden and in the flowerbed.


This year, we are going to have all our peppers in the flowerbeds, or so says the bossman. Right.

Oh my! These pictures really make me want to move south. Since that is not a likely possibility I will live vicariously through you. The vegies look wonderful!

Wonderful! Our Walmart just had pansies, the big kind.

Don't mention weeds in your photos, nobody knows it isn't something that will grow up to be a lovely flower after the daffodils are done.

I try to keep after the chickweed and other noxious beauties. Every time I pull a handful, there's a poppy or other lovely underneath.

Lovely, just lovely. I love seeing the blooms, while we sit here in the cold north :)
