  1. What a nice variety! Couldn't help noticing a new variety of kohlrabi. Nice to see---they really haven't done much in breeding for them. I only ever see the white vienna and the purple vienna. My hubby enjoys them.
    Good luck with the garden this year. Hope you get plentiful rains.

  2. You inspire me to know that Spring is coming. It is fun to plan ahead and get things organized ready to go.
