Yes, please! Soup secrets! And, pray tell, what is purple soup? Any chance that, as long as you're spilling the beans, you'll share that recipe, too?

The secret is Herbs veggie bouillon cubes. And boilling everything according to density of the veggies. As for the purple soup.. purple cabbage and parsnips are the base veggies. Mmmmmm. I always try to be colorful when making soup. Tasting and veggie water raito

Oooh, there was purple kale and cauliflower at the market this week, I think I will have to make a special trip back and make your purple soup :)  Good luck with your snow peas this year, I will be planting early as well in hopes to get two crops, sometimes I can squeeze another one in in the beginning of September.
