The other day, I stepped out into my vegetable garden to get a close up look at how my veggies are ripening.

It may be hard to tell what is what because at first sight, it looks like a sea of green.
In the back I have cauliflower and carrots growing among the nasturtiums.  Toward the front, I have green onions, green leaf lettuce, spinach, parsley and oregano.
The front part of the garden is full of San Marzano tomatoes, pink-flowering Oxalis (not a veggie), garlic and nasturtiums, which are spilling out of the garden.
 
Lastly, the side garden has shallots, sugar snap peas and a single cauliflower.
I love this time of year when there is so much going on in the garden, don’t you?

I would like to thank you all for your supportive comments concerning the flooding of our house.  
We currently have 30 high power fans and 2 large de-humidifiers working in our house.  Unfortunately, that makes the air very warm – 90 degrees inside.
My kitchen is non-functional while appliances are pulled away from the walls, so we are eating out quite a bit (which really isn’t all that bad 😉
The interior walls, furniture and carpet were destroyed.  Thankfully, the insurance company has been very helpful.
I hope you all have a great weekend!

    Your garden is so beautiful and fruitful! What a great job you all did. I am so sorry to hear about the water. That can be so awful but sounds like things are going as well as can be expected. I hope the insurance covers all the damage for you.
