Clearly, I need to be an lilliputian farmer, because I can't seem to grow anything larger than a tennis ball. Sorry about my "man hand" photo, but I was trying to capture the tiny-ness of this produce. Miniature cabbage, onions, broccoli, and peaches. I'm not kidding, all my peaches (all 7 of them) are this size and the one I tasted was awful. The onions, out of the 60 we planted, we got about 20. The onions aren't so bad, I might be able to pass them off as "spring onions." Don't get me started on this pathetic little broccoli. The cabbage is another matter. I still have one in the ground that may produce a head about the size of a whiffle ball. Maybe I can make tiny cabbage soup with tiny onions. Ugh, frustration!
I'm off now to wallow in gardening self pity for a few moments before I water my tomatoes and beans. My neighbor dropped by the other day with some heirloom tomato seedlings. I'm excited about these little plants, they have very exotic sounding names like:Black Plum and Cherokee Purple. So, with great joy I will yank out my under performing broccoli and cabbage and try again with something new.
