Mom's Christmas garden!

I took this shot down low...near to ground level, so I could try to get a sweeping shot of the garden I planted my Mom for Christmas! In the forefront are her grown kale and lettuce (these were transplanted in from my friend Karens garden)...the rest were starts from HD. She has 2 Ichiban eggplants, 5 tomato plants of various sizes and types, 8 purple cabbage, 8 kohlrabi, 8 brocolli, 1 stevia plant, 4 kale, 2 lettuce, and various flowers...zinnias, marigolds, red begonias scattered about. It has been in the ground now about 3 weeks and it is growing and everything looks real good. I am excited to see everything develop!

Have I mentioned that MY carrots are about 3/4 inch across at the tops, and that they have turned orange now? I will try and remember to take a pic in the morning.

I mixed up some very delicious lemon poppy seed muffins tonight, and they do not taste like muffins, but lovely CAKE! They came from a box, but had a lemon glaze also in the box that took them to a new level. Reminded me of the "Green cake" my grandma used to make...a lime pound cake with lime was the best cake in the universe!!! I'm all happy inside now after eating a couple of those!! Good thing I had a nap today, because I am working on a felt project and I finished up with the part I was doing at 3am! I am about to fall out. Oh well...happy Sunday to you all!

Your Mom's garden looks great Julie. I would love to see a picture of your carrots. That is a veggie that one doesn't see growing very often.
