Kohlrabis for the pickin'

If you happen to know what a kohlrabi is, most likely you'll grow them for the bulb (longer storage). I grow them for the stalks and leaves. A sweet and stringy-less alternative to kale and collards. Munch 'em raw if nobody's looking, or chop and toss in stir-fry. With a little smoked bacon. Oh, yeah. That's good.

The last couple of weeks we've noticed a female turkey passing through our yards most every day. A few days ago, I even got to see her roost up in one of our pines in the backyard for the night. Well, yesterday, being on the weekend and all, she brought a date.

Whodini goes on vacation

It's not easy being the bottom of the pecking order. Constantly getting picked on by everybody is a full-time job nobody wants. So once in awhile I give Whodini a break all by herself in "The Spa". It's the perfect blend of fluffy dirt, sun, and seclusion. Who could ask for a more perfect dust bath?
