Garden Thriving, Broccoli Failing

The garden, for the most part, is incredible. We've been eating lettuce for quite some time now. And we had our first zucchini the other day. Our tomato plants are just huge and the tomatoes look like they'll turn red soon. I ate peas straight from the pod the other day - my first time! We've got a variety of herbs in bloom in the flower box on our front porch (I love my cilantro!) We've also got spaghetti squash, cucumbers, bell peppers, eggplant, onions, and potatoes in the works. Our failure is the broccoli. In fact, I think we're going to dig it out. We just can't get it harvested in time before it flowers. But at least we tried. Taking the broccoli out will make sure there's more room for the spaghetti squash to move. Everything looks like it's on the cusp of becoming a real live vegetable (of course, not counting the vegetables that we're already eating - those are obviously real.) Soon we will have more veggies than we will know what to do with.

I don't think you were wearing your gardening shoes when you took the photo of the peas, which are lovely, BTW. Looks like you are ready to click your heels 3 times! They are beautiful and I am in awe at the lack of weeds. Somebody has been working hard.
