    WOW.... I can't wait to be pulling some goodies out of the garden like that! THANK YOU FOR SHARING!

  • Aerie-el

    Now that is some colorful, beautiful, healthy food that you've grown there! Inspiring!

  • Susan

    So jealous!!! My carrots are still pencil thin. I'd like to try the ball variety next year. Thanks for the picture of them, they look yummy!

  • Outside In

    Looks yummy!

  • vuejardin

    Your tomatoes looks so healthy and disease-free. Mine are still green with some light yellow one.

    Hi Tessa~~ The hard work is paying off big time.

  • gardenerprogress/Catherine

    Everything always looks so bright and healthy from your garden. I thought our broccoli was behind, but it's pretty close to yours.

    Bren- You are very welcome! Thanks for stopping by :)

    Aerie-el- Love your sea holly, it's just beautiful!

    Susan- I really like this variety it's called 'Parisian Market'. I pulled the first ones too early and they were tasteless. This batch was yummy. The potato was accidentally dug up as I was pulling the carrots ;)

    Cathy- I hope the beets will be good. I let some of the ones pictured get a little bigger.

    VueJardin- Some of my tomatoes were pretty beaten up by the storms, but they made it okay.

    Grace- It is so amazing to go out there and start harvesting. It's so uplifting. My only problem is remembering to only gather a little that can be used up in the week when it's the best, or I have someone to give it to!

    Catherine- Same goes to you. Especially the beautiful flowering plants you have! That broccoli is the second sowing that I made this year. I planted them out behind the peas and am hoping the peas will hold out while I'm waiting on the broccoli so they'll be shaded a bit :). There are only 2 plants, so we won't get much.

    Thanks so much for stopping by and all your encouraging comments!

    What beautiful veggies!!! They must have been very yummy:) You are WAY ahead of my garden.

    Thanks for stopping by my blog. Your tomatoes look awesome! I can't wait for mine to get that big. It will probably be another month for most of us in zone 6 New England. I enjoyed poking around your blog. I'll definitely be back for a return visit. :) -Jackie
