SG, This photo is from a different view than the "blue chair" gift photo, so I am getting a nice panoramic idea of your garden. I'm really liking it!

Sanderson, yes, this is a different view. The blue chairs are in the same place, just a different view. The right side of the pic is the North side of our garden, with 22' of 1' wide trellis, the rest are mostly 2x8 garden beds, with a few 4x8 Smile

Rose, you have good eyes! Yes, it's a big pepper tree stump. There is a table top on it, it's hard to see. I use that area to harden off my seedlings. Right now, some of my garden covers (talked about those earlier) are on top of it. God bless!!

Boffer, Don't feel bad. I thought it was a pile of large boulders. Maybe time to get new prescription for me.

Those are poles so when we pull the hoses around the boxes we don't decapitate the plants if the hose goes higher than the box.
I had a few episodes when I was happily watering along, and looked back and the hose had gone over the top of the box, and snapped off the tops of a bunch of plants. What a Face  What a Face  OR when my sweet little grand babies "help" water Wink  Wink   lol!!

oh my your pepper plants grow into trees  Shocked how cool is that! ...its pretty neat to be able to make a table out of a pepper tree!

we left our old apple tree stump out in the back garden area....so far we have used it to hold up our scare crow....funny thing is...its started to send out skinny branches....I have been tossing some ideas around that last couple of years but just haven't had the time to full fill them.....I thought it would be cool to have hubby drill a deep hole, to anchor down some kind of tall multi planter system, that we could fill with herbs and flowers....plant edibles that will self seed....and have the planter up taller then our hoops......I like the idea of different heights in the garden....also thought we could put some mason bee homes on it...... 

you have such a lovely garden area.....looks so peaceful  Very Happy 

we have had the same problems with the hose....learned the hard way too

Glad you guys like the pics. Sometimes, I feel like I might be boring people to tears Smile We are finally getting a little rain and the plants love it!! I have close to 80 poppies blooming right now. They're beautiful! Have a blessed day...........

no, we haven't eaten the green one before. It's pretty small, but are anxious to try it!! I'll let you know. We have TONS of poppies right now. It's so pretty to see them swaying in the breeze. We can see the garden from our living room and kitchen Smile God bless!!

green romanesco cauliflower is good! The only way we eat cauliflower is roasted - and we are eating a lot of it this year. Romanesco, purple, white, it doesn't matter to us  Smile I grew romanesco this year and last (only 1 plant though) and have some cheddar growing right now. I had never had cauliflower before in my life until last year. My dad hates it so my mom never cooked it. I do wonder how his mother served it to him since even my husband, who basically dislikes veggies, just loves roasted cauliflower. It seems no matter how much I make, it is never enough. Oh and I had never had brussel sprouts before and I roasted a bunch a few weeks ago and we love those too now!

I cut them into small chunks (think bite sized pieces but they shrink so take that into consideration) and spread them out on a baking sheet. I liberally drizzle olive oil over it and rub it around with my hands. Then I add some salt and pepper. The olive oil I use is garlic flavored and we love it. I put it in a preheated 350 degree oven and toss it around every 5-10 minutes. I guess it takes about 30 minutes or so. I just keep an eye on it. This works with broccoli and asparagus (but you only put the asparagus in for 10 minutes) too. Oh and at the end I shred some parmesan over it all and put it back in for another 3-4 minutes for it to melt!

after a couple of days of MUCH needed rain, the garden is lush and thriving!! The poppies are SO happy, and rananculas are budding and sprouting too. Daffodils are coming up along with Hyacinth. Peas, broccoli carrots, beets, well, pretty much everything!!
