As all of you veggie growers know . . . sometimes you get lucky with your crops and sometimes you don't.
Sometimes you get a plentiful harvest . . . and sometimes you don't.
Sometimes you can grow an extra large veggie . . . and sometimes you get a paltry looking specimen.
And, so it goes with my garden . . .
This past winter we enjoyed watching our super-sized Georgia collard green grow and grow and grow . . .
We ate off of another collard green plant while we enjoyed the beauty of this beastly-sized collard in the garden. Oops, when I took this photo I didn't notice the teenaged Lubber grasshopper on the gigantic leaf. He wouldn't dare touch my prized collard! Would he?
and then there's the other side of the coin . . .
One of the potato plants that we planted on Valentine's day died back. Hhmm, that shouldn't happen until sometime late in June, so I decided to take a look to see if, just perhaps they were ready to harvest early.
And, what do I find? Two miniature dime-sized little potatoes. Definitely not enough to fill one's hungry belly. Oh well, I can only hope the other potatoes still in the ground can go the distance.
And, that's the BIG and the small of it in my May garden.
