So back in April the little girl comes home from school with this seedling from Bonnie plants and a application to enter for some scholarship prize money. Really! Great concept but I don't even have a garden. I grow the same things every year (in containers no less). 1 rosemary plant, 1 basil plant. That's it. On a good year I throw a few impatiences in the planter on the front steps. Don't get me wrong, I like plants but they don't like me. I once heard a rumor that I am not allowed to visit winery's because as I walk through the grapes they fall from the vines! OK, so that's just something I made up in my head, but really my thumb is not green it is actually Stazon black from inking up some crafty goodness. But who could say no to face like that! So in lieu of my basil I gave Rory my second largest pot and a bag of soil. I let her plant her seedling. Wow, it was worth it. She grew her awesome cabbage! She really took the time to take care of it. When she went away for summer vacation her Poppy was under strict orders to water it and talk to it. He did a good job, You go Poppy!!!! This week Rory and I went outside and cut her cabbage. I could not believe what a great job she did. This Sunday if all goes well we are going to eat it. Yup, as soon as I come up with some sort of recipe Rory and I are going to make something delish out of that cabbage! Ummmm . . . . . . cabbage (Sure it couldn't be an eggplant or a zucchini, something I understand) Stay tuned for part 2 I am sure you are all on the edge of your seat wondering what we are going to make with it. Thanks for stopping by!
