Thursday Night Flower Harvest

The major harvest of course came in the eating kind, zuchinni, beets, two-days-in-the-sun-partly-cured garlic and some giant beets, but none of these would look so hot in a vase. Most of the flowers remain in the vegetable garden where bees and other garden beneficials can enjoy them. My interest in growing flowers for cutting is a recent one and I'm trying to figure out how much each plant produces grown organically, so I'm amazed at these sweet harvests which come from only the tiniest portion of my community garden plot. I'm guessing that a field trip to an organic flower farm is in order soon.
