Looks great, Bob. We just removed the lettuce plants to the compost heap after three harvests, least. Dittor for the bed of mustards and collards. Everything else coming on very strong. It will be a bumper crop of beans, tomatoes and cucumbers, I think.

Bob,
Of everything, I envy your peas the most. Nobody around here grows them and the one time I found fresh English peas at the supermarket they weren't that fresh. I recall as kid eating them straight off the vine.

Bob,
a couple of questions.
how many years ago did you plant your asparagus? it's a lot bigger than ours, which we planted this spring from 1 year old crowns.

also, what are you doing with the morning glory? is that to prevent it from spreading around the garden?

That's the way i eat them too. They rarely make it to the kitchen.

Paul
Those asparagus have been in the ground for three years. I believe they were a year old when i planted them.

The fence around the morning glory is to protect it from ground hogs and rabbits. They love the stuff.

BTW, I'm going to eat at King's restaurant on Sat with Pardus and a bunch of other "culinarians." I'm psyched!
