              Good day to you all, this is Ken and Marilou with you all on Garden The Easy Way.  

               Today Marilou and I would like to tell you about another tasty vegetable soup recipe. We found a recipe close to this one and we make some changes to suit our taste, and it is so delicious, we hope you all like it. That is the thing about vegetable soup, if there is a vegetable you don't like leave it out. We call our new vegetable recipe  ( Elliott's Vegetable Soup ).
