  1. WOW..such beautiful pictures.
    Geesh, my garden is still in the dirt stage
    It snowed last week :(

  2. How I miss "planet Houston" (as my kids call it). Such lovely things growing already. Here in the mountains it will be a while before we can plant anything outdoors. =)

  3. So beautiful to see your fava beans. I have never grown those and am planning on starting them this fall for sure. Do you let them get big or do you usually use them when they are small seeded ?
    Regarding your cucumbers, do you find that you have to plant a succession crop or does one planting hold you until the frost ? This year I have Suhyo Cross, White Star and another Asian long green cucumbers. I started harvesting 2 weeks ago and am in the state of ample production now ( I picked over a dozen cucumbers from 8 plants today! ). Part of me thinks that I should have planted a bit later so that I would have them with my tomatoes. I wanted to know if you thought I should plant another set of seeds now.
