Could you make a coleslaw with them do you think Andy?

I've taken to eating the outside leaves of my cabbages prior to them heading up.  They are much better than I expected.

Hey Christa, probably re cabbages.  But I’m not having much luck with anything in that family at the moment.  My strawberries are a mix of Redlands joy and sugar baby    I ended up buying a little tripod from Kmart for my I phone which has made filming easier.  I’m looking forward to Rogers visit and seeing everyone.

Tomatoes look great, quite productive, are you bringing some to GV tasting at Roger's.  I have one lonely tomato and if it ripens in time I might bring it.

The cabbages not heading up, do you think it's the weather not cold enough.  Love seeing the chickens picking and scratching etc, I should set up a camera at someone's place and watch them live. 

Your garden reminds me of a chinaman's vegetable garden with seedlings coming up everywhere. That crinkly kale looks healthy,  

Your strawberries look promising,   I bought some from Daleys called rubygem suited to our area. So keep my fingers crossed.  Malayan patchouli was another purchase. 

Great to get the opportunity to see your garden on video, thanks Susan..  I tried to do it with our son's gopro but I kept stumbling all over the place.
