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.

Attracting pollinators to the veggie garden....


My bride of over 40 years went out today and proudly pulled a lot of young dollar weed (pennywort) from around my veggie garden.  She even presented me with the pot full of the weeds and was so proud! 


I'll be putting in more nasturtium seeds this afternoon....  (the leaves are almost identical.)  (SMILE)

Check out the discussion on Zone 9 Group. We have been having a pH discussion.

also love the idea about composting in my garden space.  Living in our garden paradise creates huge compost piles.  We have three!  I have comfrey so I will be sure to get it growing in at least one of my piles.  Friends often find treasures for their own garden in my compost pile. As soon as our current rain stops, I also need to get the peas into the garden along with cabbage, broccoli and lettuce all of which are doing well in the greenhouse.  Love all the helpful tips!

Barbara, What a wonderful idea.  Great way to save the back.  And rotation is a great idea also.

Lila, lovely vegetables and fruit. Charlie and Bob absolutely great ideas for waist hight planters. Also a great post on organic critter control. The posts have been very informative this winter/spring. I am so happy to see all the excitement as spring comes. I plan to plant peas today. It is just a little on the late side, but they should be okay. I plan to presoak them to aid rapid germination. I also plant to add more leaves to the large compost pile which is enclosed with straw bales. I have found that moving my compost site to a different section of the garden each year and composting in place is fabulous for the soil and for my back. No more trudging with multiple wheelbarrows full of compost to spread. I just leave it in place. It does leave one garden bed fallow for the year. But this also helps with my four year rotation to prevent disease.
