RE: Our garden for 2006

Fabulous! Thank you so much for continuing to share your garden with us kubotabx2200.

It is always a joy to see your garden. Did you get the one label translated yet?

RE: Our garden for 2006

No I have not gotten an English translation my wife can read it in Chinese of course (she wrote it) but doesn't know how to name the vegetables in English.

RE: Our garden for 2006


Ask your wife how she prepares it. Is it cooked? How? Pickled? With what? Etc.




Also, ask her if it has serrated or smooth edges. And let us know what the phonetic pronounciation is of it in Chinese. (Spell it out by how it sounds in Chinese when she says it.)

RE: Our garden for 2006

Not only very pretty, Kubotabx, but the vegetables look very tasty! Appears to be good, rich soil. Nice.

I'm going to look thru here and see what we might be missing. Thanks!
