      Uncle Bill, thanks so much for this delicious recipe. I used onions, carrots, peppers, cabbage, beets and potatoes fresh from my garden! I didn't have any red cabbage, celery, cauliflower or dill, ,but did have a bunch of beets and used them all. I'm sure this soup will be even better with all the required ingredients, but for now it is the best soup I have ever made because I grew all of it! Thanks again.
