What a beautiful garden! This year my tomatoes didn't do so well. Hoping next year will be better.


How lucky you are, to have a son and daughter-in-law, with all this knowledge of planting. And to have them using it, in your area.

A non pristine look will be lovely. It will look as if Nature did it. And what could be more wonderful.



My Italian family loved,,cardoons. We would pick them in the wild. Basically,,after,cleaning,we blanched, breaded and fried. Here is a good link to how to prepare them in this way. http://blog.cookitaly.com/2011/01/golden-fried-cardoons.html.
I just love seeing your family garden progress.

Thanks for the tip! We havent cooked any yet. I hear they taste like artichokes?


What a wonderful post about doing things as a family.
Our Apple and pear trees only produce every other year. We get some apples every year but harvestable only alternating years.


This is such a great family project, and I can personally attest to the tastiness of the garden bounty. I think my tummy was happier the two days spent at your event last spring than it was before or has been since!

Aw, thanks, Terri! The fresher the better, right?
