My daddy grew up in Kansas, Alabama with four brothers and three sisters. He has two surviving sisters and one surviving brother now, and this week his brother is visiting my parents for a few days. We had a lovely dinner out last night and then came back to our house for dessert. Another round of mini-cheesecakes made an appearance, and after dessert, the two veteran gardening brothers went over to my little garden to give it an inspection. I think I passed!
Dad did end up going home with three broccoli rabe plants and three brussels sprouts from my little shopping trip this past weekend. I did keep one of each, just to see how they’ll do. Here’s a little gallery of our evening.
