"Honey, my love... let me just take a quick stroll in the garden... I'll be all of 30 seconds."

Pretty much, a story that repeats itself time and time again on any given day. As such, one is never prepared for the surprises a quick stroll in the garden brings... the hidden tomato in the cluster... the zucchini that grew in the night... the okra that wasn't ready 5 minutes ago... the pepper that plays peek-a-boo... an eggplant suddenly there. So much so fast... where is that trug, that basket, that container when you need it!

Oh well... an hour later, hats off to the garden hat... the multi-purpose must-have.

You nailed this one. I have often gone to the garden thinking there wouldn't be that much and there I am with nothing to put a decent harvest in. I don't think I've done a hat, but that would definitely work.

Hi Maria, I have so enjoyed exploring your blog, and I have a little tomato envy! You have grown some true beauties. We have a small garden, and it always holds surprises, as you rightly point out. The growth and changes are at once imperceptible and then mammoth!
Hats off!
