We had a small harvest from the garden this week, but that is because I am vain. My Mom arrives on Wednesday and I don't want to denude the garden before she flies in. There are greens greens galore there! Some boy choy, tatsoi, and turnip greens all waiting to come out. I can't wait to see what she cooks up. I know everyone says this about their Mom, but she is an AMAZING cook. I cook well, but she cooks better. I will keep the camera ready and make lots of posts about the yummies.

Fall is not a good time to grow peas or lima beans in this little section of SoCal. Despite the babying and coddling, my arch nemisis Mr. Buddy is out to get me. The peas are being nibbled to the ground once uncovered and the lima beans are attacked from two fronts! I nurture and nurture and nurture.... and he/she eat and eats and eats. When I uncover the tender shoots the bunny digs up the seed and nibbles it away and leaves a stalk with no base. Erg.
Sounds like it's time to make a special trip to the nursery to get bunny repellent. Happy shopping -- I meant gardening!
