"HOT" Harvest Monday
With all this HOT weather we had. It was a very good week in the garden. We picked the first large tomatoes....2 Cherokee Purples. We had "The Great Garlic Harvest". The second wave of Snow Peas is complete and 3 nice heads of Cauliflower were harvested as well.

"The Italian" slicing the tomatoes
Oops...I wasn't fast enough...the sandwiches are gone!
Three nice heads of cauliflower.
Due to our ridiculously hot weather. Two of the three heads could not be left in the garden long enough to bleach out
"The Great Garlic Harvest of 2010"

It was too darn hot for me to move all of them for the picture!
