Kia hora te manno
Kia whakapapa paumamu te moana
Kia tere te Karohirohi

May the calm be widespread
May the sea glisten like the greenstone
And may the glimmer of summer dance across your pathways

Guess what's for dinner tonight?

The first of the 'Mini baseball sized' cabbages, although it isn't exactly 'baseball shaped, and a whole heap of delightfully sweet 'Sunsugar cherry tomatoes'


My favorite way to prepare fresh cabbage, is to coarsely shred it, and saute it in a little olive oil, season with salt and freshly ground black pepper and enjoy. These cabbages are just the right size for one person, and as my honey does not care for cabbage, I grew this variety just for myself.

Each week Daphne's Dandelions hosts Monday Harvest. Be sure to visit her blog to see who is harvesting what this week!

Have you ever made cabbage rolls? They are a northeast favorite. Your husband might like the cabbage that way. Tomatoes look good!

I have never grown cabbage. Yours look so tasty I just might try a row next year.
Tasty looking tomatoes too.
Fresh from the garden is the best.

Hi Jennifer! We also had our first white cabbage for dinner yesterday. Russian salad was made with it. It tasted good, but I should admit that your cabbage looks more funny, almost like a football!

Oh that so sounds like me. I love cabbage.

Yum, but hubby thinks it should be banned from menus.

I grew some softball sized cabbage this spring. I love the size since I can make the whole thing into coleslaw and be able to eat it all in a couple of days. In the winter I buy some local large heads and I have to use it by peeling the leaves off one at a time so it doesn't go bad before I eat it all.

Hi Jennifer~~ I thought your tomatoes looked familiar. I too am growing, picking and enjoying the 'Sun Sugar' variety. It sure doesn't disappoint, does it? Yum.
