Above, three kinds of kale: Dino or Italian kale, Red Russian Kale, and your oft seen green curly kale.
Rutabaga on the left, white turnips in the centre and watermelon radishes on the right. Sorry I don't have a picture of the inside of the watermelon radish as t is bright pink with a green edge, looking very much like a watermelon when sliced up.

On the flip side, the kitchen is a cosy place to be and it is always a delight to step out of doors, into your own back yard and pull up dinner from the earth. Last year my efforts to grow carrots were a fail but this year, although not as plentiful as I would have hoped, we have been enjoying lots of fresh carrots.

It has been as busy as usual and I am working away on a number of projects around here. More on that later, when I can finally get them done. Lots of tomatoes have passed through my kitchen and I am done with them for this year.
Have a lovely week.

Now, the question is: What creative things can you make with these? They look fun all gathered into a vintage vase. I "see" lots of little speckled mushrooms, or perhaps the colourful centres to some funky flowers. Attached at the centre to create a large star burst?
Of course, they still work well in shoes too.

For a while my mom mailed in her own ATCs. Since the group disbanded, we continue to trade each month. She usually chooses the theme and we mail three to each other. I normally forget to make a copy for my own records but today I actually scanned them. The theme for September was "silhouettes." They are simple but I am pleased with the result and they will mail well too.

We got 7 quarts. Not bad. Some of my own late-blooming tomatoes are sitting on the jars.
Today everyone is better than they were, and on the mend thankfully. And I have leftovers. Bonus!!
