oh, you can grow celery! I'm jealous... :)

Dani said...

And here I am, jealous that you can grow artichokes! I would love to have them in my garden.

threecollie said...

My, my, that sure brought a smile to my face!

Big Shamu said...

Damn, that is one freaking big droplet. Sooooo glad it's not snow.

I see the seeding mania was put to good use.

Darla said...

Yes mam!! Delightful indeed....

Granny Annie said...

Does that cheddar cauliflower just look like cheese or does it taste like cheese too?

Dani said...

ThreeC, I love that you see the beauty in veggies too.

Shamy, It was pouring early this morning! Yippee!
But come on now, why does it have to rain when I spent most of yesterday making the front porch nice and tidy. GRRR....;)

My seed mania is out of control! But the good news is, there has been talk of making me a bigger front yard garden. WOOOOOOT!

Darla, hope you're doing lots better now.

Dani said...

Granny Annie, no, it taste like cauliflower, but so much richer. I highly recommend it.

Big Shamu said...

Yes, talk of a bigger front yard garden will conversely cut down on Tom Turkey ownership.

Native Mom said...

It all makes me hungry!

Dani said...

I WANT A TURKEY!!

We have never grown broccoli before. Any suggestions? I am not sure where in Florida you are. When do you plant and do you start with a little seedling plant?

Sandcastle Momma said...

Beautiful! I've never heard of cheddar cauliflower. Love the water droplet!

Dani said...

Native Mom, I just hope we get to enjoy some of the yummies before the little wild bunnies do.

SnB, If I'm not mistaken, I think I'm zone 9b.
I usually start sowing seeds for my winter garden at the end of Sept. in little seed trays. The best potting soil that I've found so far has been Lambert's. It's a nice, lightweight mix. Great for keeping the little seedlings from getting too wet.

Thanks ScMomma. :)
I LOVE the cheddar cauliflower! It's so tasty.

Dang girl! You are growing celery? Who does that?

Is it hard to grow?

And that is some freaky cauliflower.

Nicolezmomma said...

I can only hope to grow a garden as beautiful as yours one day.

And why are we growing celery??

Boxer said...

I love your pictures. We won't be seeing anything fresh from gardens for about..... 5 months? So it's always nice to see what you have growing. :-)

Big Shamu said...

Say YES to a handsome Tom Turkey. Talk about a strutter. I bet HE would eat celery.

Dani said...

Yes, Yes, Yes!!!

lisaschaos said...

Delights indeed! These are all great! We'll be coming to FL next week and I'm so excited to see green and warmth! :)

No Tom Turkey!!
They eat anything, including little fingers and toes...and any other partsof anatomy they can catch.NO<NO<NO<

LaDivaCucina said...

Your cruciferous veggies are obviously ok after the cold snap but how did your beans and tomatoes fare?

Don't forget to save some celery seeds to make celery salt for bloody marys! (C'mon girl, get your priorities straight!)

Comin' over to make a nice gratin with the cauliflower, yum! haha! What are you going to do with it? Creamy cauliflower soup with a hint of nutmeg is nice too.

Forget the turkey, Diva says get a peacock! Your neighbors will LOVE you!

Meems said...

Dani,
Your veggies look beautiful... so colorful and healthy!

Dani said...

Anon, hmmmm....you sound like my mom. :)


Diva, you give me such good veggie cooking ideas!

The tomatoes are toast. All 37 of them.*sniff* It's okay though, we made green tomato and rasberry jam and pickled pretty much what was left.


Meems, hey you! :) How did your garden fare?

Big Shamu said...

Here Turkey, Turkey, Turkey.....

Susan said...

Your garden looks so yummy...especially the colorful cauliflour.

Dani said...

FIGHT THE POWER!

My celery looks about the same size! Too bad we can't enjoy it now.

Dani said...

Thanks Susan. :)

Kate and Crew said...

oh man. It's all alive. It survived the Florida freeze then? Very jealous. I don't have much still alive - but that shouldn't be a surprise to anyone - LOL.
