The Day We Dug Up The Monster Fennel

Last week we went to Berkeley for a garden birthday party. The wood burning pizza oven was going, and we were looking for toppings. Berkeley Bowl is great, but how about the fennel growing outside? Free is free!

Jill started going at it with the shovel, but the ground was really dry.

Ryan offered to help. Jill supervises.

Or was he put to work? I suppose it was only a matter of time before he started taking up gardening…

We took turns…When it was my turn I hacked at the roots and broke the end in half. Oops! So much for the roots.

It was a monster!!

We strung it up for fun, and no, we didn’t end up putting it on our pizza.
