some assembly required

The broccoli is starting to come in. I find that if I try to pick and freeze just a little bit every day, it is not such an overwhelming task.

About 3 pounds a day is just right.

They do look like little trees, don't they?

The collar is now finished on the Jawbreaker Cardigan. I still have to sew in the sleeves and side seam. And sew the button on. This is the last project that I will ever do using Jacks wool. It is somewhat sad to be finishing it. The wool feels wonderfully soft and cushy.

The cardigan looks soft and cushy, too. When my kids were little, I got them to eat broccoli by telling them to pretend they were tree eating dinosaurs. (It worked :)

Your broccoli is beautiful! I wish I could grow broccoli like that. Something always eats it just before it is ready. The hummingbird video is great, btw. It really does sound like the little guy is rumbling around the Monarda.

There's something very satisfying about processing the fruits (veggies!) of our garden labor! I've been cooking/canning raspberry jam for the grandkids. And your jawbreaker cardi is gorgeous!!

I can't wait to see the cardi done. I had to do 10 quarts of broccoli on Friday and then I got tired so I gave some to SIL. I haven't had time to go back to the garden since then but will have to go check tomorrow. I will pry be doing another marathon freezing...I like your way better as it does seem less overwhelming...but I have to catch up first.

Oh goodness, my garden isn't producing anything yet, so living vicariously through you - YUM!

BTW, I nominated you for Rockin' Girl Blogger on my site. Check it out.

Ohhh, lovely cardigan. I love reading about homegrown veggies, too.

How do you grow such perfect broccoli? I get small heads but never a good crown, or the bugs get to it first.

The cardi will be well worn and cherished.
