do you know sauerkraut is the best defence when you feel ill?! old receipe of my mum, and it still works, when I feel my kydney a slightly bit,  in the evening I make a meal with sauerkraut (white cabbage) and end up running sort off to the little room , but the tightness around my kydneys is gone, it clears your system, better than medizine !rinse 3 times drain, fry in olive oil for  between 8-10 min. put a good dash of caraway seeds in , when finish frying put  2 soupspoons of water in it and steam for a few minutes enjoy is loveley to eat with all kinds of meats/fish , put spus too to the dish , I myself eat it cold too and enjoy it, try and see for yourself!I would recommend it for anyone on a lot of medications , you dont want to screw your kydneys up, and the medicinal clay will do it, watch out for that.....

My neighbor, who speaks expert garden, planted several artichokes along a 100 ft border.  They were beautiful full with artichokes when one morning they all lie limp in the dirt.  A gopher had found that he loved artichoke roots...must taste similar to the hearts!  She spoke of replanting using cages for the roots, but hasn't.  It was a dismal morning for her.

The sun came out!  I harvested the last of the beets today and put them in a salad with our red lettuce.  I can't believe it has withstood several freezes and is crisp and beautiful and going strong.  The chard is coming back too.  Since amending the soil with sandy loam and mulching all summer, weeding was a breeze.  I got done in two hours what would have taken me a week last year.  Found a stray turnip.  What does one do with one turnip? Michelle, I make sweet and sour cabbage rolls.  They disappear really fast around here.

The one artichoke plant died following the bloom, while 4 new plants sprouted from the base, and are nearly as large as the one in Leilani's photograph. The plant last year produced 5 flowers, is it reasonable to expect a similar bloom number with each of the new plants?

One of the things I liked most about the artichoke plant, was the shade it provided the seedling moss rose around the base.

Leilani-What a beautiful artichoke plant! I tried artichokes for the first time last spring. I only planted one plant of globe, I purchased it as a 6" high pup with 6 leaves. Summer found 5 flowers, I harvested and prepared 4 of them for the family table. I had never seen the flower, so the smallest and latest I let go to seed. What a beautiful tanzanite-colored blue flower remained in all it's glory for nearly a month, then went to seed.

I love Chow Chow!  So, GA is earlier than Oregon for starting outside!  Great you go in front of me and then tell me what not to do. LOL

I dry and freeze cabbage.  I'll give some of these plants to friends and family, plant the rest.  I plant on giving some cabbage to our local food bank for those that would like some.

That is lots of cabbage.  What do you do with it?  I plan to make kraut from an old time recipe this year, but I'm only putting in 6 cabbages now and again for fall.  It is much more beautiful than my itty bitty plants.

Beautiful Mickalyn.
