Land of giants

Last Update: August 12, 2019

Hello everybody, I hope this makes you smile

We, in Europe, all know that in America everything is bigger.

Michael emigrated from the U.S. to Spain in 2016.

He insisted on taking over the organic vegetable garden.

Now, look at what has happened....

Hello Taestke,

That is an impressive zucchini indeed. Plenty to share with others....rather like here, don't you think?
Where there is an abundance of knowledge to offer for the good of the community.

Billy

Good afternoon Billy,

Thank you for stopping by. This was just a little joke for in between you know as we cannot be serious all the time.

The sharing aspect in WA is really nice and makes it very human.

Good afternoon Alan,

I think he is developing his green thumb or something like it.
I am happy not to have that responsibility anymore. After so many years it is nice to do other things, like 2 websites.

Hi I find growing giant veg very interesting. That is a giant courgette or more proper it is a small marrow (they would call it a tiddler)
If you see some of the giants the grow here in the UK where the biggest and world record is 93.7kg and over a metre long ( grown in the Netherlands).
Long way to go to be a giant.
It is a whopper, too much for a family to eat.

Good afternoon Antonio,

Thank you for your comment. Michael did not pretend to grow such big vegetables, it just happened. Luckily our happy chickens eat about anything so they for sure will get a bite.
Yes, Holland, a small country but some big things.

Congratulations!

Good afternoon Jean-yves,

Thank you for stopping by. No elephants in Spain but in old times there were dinosaurs.

Hi, Taestke,
Looks like your organic garden is growing brilliantly. What is Michaels secret...:)
What awesome recipes are you going to make with the Calabacin. I miss Spanish Cuisine.

Good afternoon Debs,

Well, or I invite the whole neighborhood or I make a huge pot with lots of garlic, onion, eggplant, some tomatoes, and freeze portions.
For 2 people that thing is way too big. We did have a good laugh when Michael showed it to me. Secret? own water, sunshine and lots of loving care.

Have a great Sunday, Taetske
