U-Pick Man

Levi did a "SUPER" job with the garden while I was out of town....

Apparently he used his "SUPER POWERS" on the vegetables, because everything is doing so well!!

The Cauliflower is incredible...

The "God" turnip is bigger than ever....

The Rat-Tailed Radish plants are just loaded with Radish pods....

I've never seen so many pods!

There's so many pods that the plants are starting to fall over!

The second planting of radishes is up and ready to be picked....

And the Peas.....Holy Cow, the Peas!!  There just doesn't seem to be any stopping them!!!

The green Snow Pea Pods are huge...

And the yellow variety of Snow Pea is really impressing me with how many Pea Pods it's producing...

When I left I was worried that there wasn't enough produce left in the garden, but I am astounded by the volume of produce that's here... Broccoli Sprouts, Leeks, Carrots, Beets, Cucumbers....Thanks Levi!

p.s. this sudden surge in production might have something to do with the fact that the sun was shining the whole time I was gone or that I mulched all of the beds with seaweed, but....?
