In preparation for Wednesday, I pulled out the seeds tonight and made
Broccoli DeCicco and Packman and Early Dividend
Cauliflower: Snow Crown Hybrid and Early Snowball
Chinese Cabbage: Michihili
Boy choi: Joi Choi Hybrid
Brussel Sprouts: Long Island Yes, I am a glutton for punishment.
This will be my 7th time on Brussel sprouts. Maybe 7 is the magic
number-supposed to be lucky.
"Nothing in this world can take the place of persistence. Talent will
not; nothing is more common than unsuccessful people with talent. Genius
will not; unrewarded genius is almost a proverb. Education will not; the
world is full of educated derelicts. Persistence and determination alone
are omnipotent. The slogan 'press on' has solved and always will solve
the problems of the human race"
~ Calvin Coolidge
