If you remember my posts last summer, I was struggling with keeping my garden and yard plants alive in the severe drought we were experiencing. This year we've had rain and just this week we've had several inches of rain. It is glorious to have the plants performing at their best, the saplings putting on some height and the grass greening up and making up for the patches that were lost last year.

Now this is amazing! We picked up this kohlrabi at the local produce stand today. It is a hybrid kohlrabi that gets this large and is not woody! I grew kohlrabi this year but mine did get woody so I must have had the original cultivar. Next to this monster is a bottle of wine and a peach to give you perspective! It fills one side of my double sink. Aren't plants interesting?
The tomato plants are huge and full of green tomatoes. We are now waiting for warm weather to ripen those fruit red. Tomatoes are our favorite so we are anxious to begin eating our own tomatoes.
Hope you are thoroughly enjoying your summer,
