Snap Peas

Snap peas are a great cold weather plant for Southern California. I didn't plant as many as I would have liked to but the ones I did plant are doing quite well, thank you very much. The blossoms looked stunning last week when I "snapped" this photo. This variety of peas is one which has edible pods.

Cool weather vegetables are growing with vigor in my California garden. After weeks of cold--well cool--weather I discovered the garden had not lost sight of its number one function. Three beautiful heads of cauliflower are ready for harvesting.

Beautiful Broccoli

Heavy rains and the holiday season kept me from my usual garden visits over the past few weeks. Today was sunny and I had to take advantage of the situation and do a little garden inspection. Wow! This is just one of the surprises I got. I will post a few more over the next few days.

From the 80s--A Garden in Cincinnati

I've had the good fortune to find another photo of my past garden in Anderson Township in Ohio. Looks like I was growing beans, zucchinis, cucumbers, tomatoes and various flowers. Despite the fact that we were growing this on the edge of the woods, it seems we got enough sun to get a great garden.

Fashion notes...check out shoulder pads in polo shirt! Also, that's a gray Swatch watch I'm sporting on my wrist. Also, note to girlfriends, that's my purse on my shoulder...even back then...
