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

See what happens when you take a mini-vacation

It is amazing how things can change in the garden over a period of six days.

Ahh Haa, so I am going to have some Rubine Brussels sprouts this year. Look at the wee babies starting to form at the juncture of the leaves, I am pretty excited to see the heads as it is the very first time I have ever grown Brussels sprouts.

The gourds are not huge but they are rather cute, don't you think?

Many of he scarlet runner beans are past their prime and these will be saved for seed. The rest will be enjoyed for dinner tonight.

The baseball sized cabbage is firm, and will be a tasty treat for us in the next few days, and Our rabbit is going to like the outer leaves.

Jennifer~~ The cabbage looks too pretty to pick. I hope you'll keep us posted on the progress of your Brussels sprouts. They might be too pretty to pick too! I hope your mini-vacation was delightful.

Are those going to be purple brussel sprouts? I love sprouts, but I had no idea that they might? come in purple.
