  1. A lovely harvest, sometimes I dont' get out and harvest like I should either, but then sometimes I have a crazy crazy work schedule.

  5. Oh no---poor cauliflower!
    It's hard to keep up with it sometimes. You've had a nice harvest.

  6. Nice harvest Mrs.P! All of us gardeners get too busy or too tired at times and don't get to everything.

  7. I swore to myself that I would never let my garlic chives flower (they really reseed a lot and are hard to weed out). So this year of course I have a beautiful spray of garlic chive flowers in the garden. I ought to have picked them as scapes so I could eat them, but not one got inside for that. Something always gets away from me.
