This morning started with some biscuits and scrambled eggs and eating with my sweetie then continued to the garden where lots of treasures were harvested. We started in the cotton patch where I harvested lovely cotton heads from seed I planted in the early spring. The seed came form Miss Candice who had grown this variety for the past three years.
Unopened Nankeen cotton
And here's what it looks like when you harvest it.
Then we moved over to the sunchoke patch where some friends came to observe the findings.
Butternut just making sure I'm digging right
And Frannie just making sure I hadn't found a rabbit or something of the sorts
Here they are... the marvelous sunchokes. Kelsey and I planted these in the spring and watched them get taller and taller and taller and then produce the loveliest little yellow flowers. The sunchokes originally came from our friend Felicja's brothers farm in New Mexico.
