Sometimes a Zucchini is Just a Zucchini...

So, lets revisit last year's garden...
 And my one sad little zucchini, the only one fit to be harvested, and put to shame by the gift from a friend's garden...
Now, let fast forward to this year's garden...
And the very first zucchini picked is supermarket quality!!
And...
There are more on the way!!!
No need for sympathy this year, this year the plant assassin has succeeded in growing zucchini!!!
Of course, I had help...
And if I'm being truly honest here, I didn't actually do the planting, BUT!  I do the watering and I stare anxiously at the plants willing them to grow and that counts for something, right?...
Ok, go ahead and laugh, the fact is?
I have zucchinis in my garden!
AND!
I have pepper plants...
Note I say pepper PLANTS, not peppers, does anyone know why my peppers aren't growing?  Any suggestions?  The plants are flourishing, but not producing!
AND!
I have massive amounts of cilantro!
The garden smells like salsa, and we didn't even plant any cilantro this year, it just decided to come back!
AND!...
Sort of hidden behind the wall of zucchini, we have onions!
AND!...
believe it or not, this is an asparagus!
I kid you not, the scrawniest, most unappetizing asparagus, maybe, but it too decided to make a reappearance after having been planted last year!
I wish I could tell you that all this improvement in gardening has rubbed off on me and that my thumbs are now tinged with green, but no such luck...
I am not a gardener, I am the waterer of grass, the mower of lawns, the supervisor of weeding, but I will have to leave the true gardening to the experts...
At least I can cook!  ;-)

  1. As is the case with all Rolex watches, the Rolex Datejust II replica watches sale and Rolex Day-Date II casebacks are totally blank, with a simple brushed finish. Comfort is rather excellent, though the larger 41mm wide case size requires a different sort of wearing expectation as the under-part of the case is quite flat, and replica watches sale the case is relatively long. It isn't less comfortable than the 36mm wide version, but it simply doesn't wear as snugly on the wrist. Note that these Rolex replica watches sale still bear the protective plastic over many of the surfaces as required by dealers on unsold pieces. That also goes with the little bar code on the side of the case that is removed upon replica watches sale purchase. Over the years, Rolex has offered the Datejust and Rolex Day-Date with a range of bracelet styles. Each of the models comes with just one bracelet option. As I mentioned, the Rolex Day-Date II swiss replica watches comes only with the Rolex President bracelet.
