My garden is doing pretty well. Because of the scorching heat, I've had all my beets bolt--that was very sad for me!!! I will reseed and hopefully I will get some before winter. I'm growing a lot of new things. My favorite new plant so far: purple cauliflower named "Graffiti." It is spectacular. I have four plants in total, but so far, only one has produced a head. No matter because this thing is something special!!!!!
It is an amazing purple...the colors of nature just astound me. These cauliflower plants went through a recent hail storm and received very minimal damage. I have noticed absolutely no pests. I was hoping they would grow--it took my breath away and startled me when I discovered this, the farthest plant, had a fully developed head growing. For perspective, here's a picture of my daughter with it.
It is nearly as big as her head. It weighed in at a little over a pound. I roasted it with a little bit of butter, olive oil, and garlic. It was delicious and still retained its beautiful color. This is definitely something I would not mind growing again! What a showstopper! How is your garden growing? Anything new that you are trying? I hope you are having a wonderful summer. Blessings!
