Looks tasty!

Dani said...

Froggy, my fave is the ruby red swiss chard. It goes great in risotto.

Huge smile! How lovely! I broke down and planted one thing yesterday in a flower pot with a soda bottle greenhouse over it. We tried an Italian zucchini last year, Zucchetta Ramp Tromboncino, and it was the best we have ever tasted, but too long season to grow well here, so I started some indoors. Thanks for sharing your wonderful garden and delightful chickens!

How the heck do you keep the Girlz from eating the caterpillars? Especially the big fat ones?

Dani said...

ThreeC, did you get the seeds through Pinetree Gardens?

Shamy, I keep them in their run!

Big Shamu said...

The caterpillars have their own run?

Dani said...

You make me laugh girlfriend!

MakingSpace said...

So pretty - except for the teeny weird caterpillar runs. haha

Granny Annie said...

Oh Dani, you really stepped in it with that caterpillar run. LOL Did you know we lost our girl Chicken Little that looks just like your Laverne? She was over six years old and moved here with us from Kansas. It broke my heart. Love, love and keep loving your garden!

The garden looks awesome! Nice list of seeds there, I'll be watching for a photo of your Floradade tomatoes, I know they are supposed to resist blight, and this year is supposed to be a bad one. Lookin' good!

Dani said...

I'm so very sorry Granny. ((hugs from me to you))

Erin, ugh. Just what we need on top of all this crazy weather!
