Our organic veggies!

We have already had a delicious serving of creamed spinach from our veggie patch. I cut about 40 medium sized leaves. Unfortunately it only made enough for 3 small portions!

Yes you read that correctly ...... Tobacco . MrGee is doing a little experiment. He is hoping to get a harvest and make a cigar or too. Not that any of us smoke!! I used to in my early 20's so I told him I might consider being his chief tester!! MrGee's dad had a tobacco farm in Zimbabwe many moons ago, and MrGee is considering (once things settle in that region) trying to get the farm back and do a little tobacco farming. Yip it's sort of a pipe dream!

I love how you have planted your veggies in those planters. And I will be very interested to see how those cigars turn out ;-) Hope you weren't too badly affected by the storm on Friday??
