birthday garden

we have been looking back at our posts last year to see garden pictures so it seemed appropriate to post garden pictures on my birthday.
our best onion crop ever! we have 25 or so of these. this is the biggest of course.


the comparison to last year pic. taken from there looking here.


if only i had stopped five feet back dropping this in place would have been easier. it is one of the raised beds from the garden that came with the house. now we just need to fill it.

it has been a wonderful birthday. we got out early to take our long walk. several relatives left stylish singing renderings of "happy birthday" while we were out. my marvelous hippie wife made a delicious breakfast. we purchased salmon AND scallops to satisfy my fish jones and the garden has provided squash, eggplant, onion and garlic (never tried to grill it before). all to be bbq'd.

much more importantly.... thanks to all my friends, met and unmet, for such nice thoughts on the occasion of my entering my 70th year.
