A Great Gardening Moment

This week I had a great gardening moment, perhaps my greatest gardening moment to date: I harvested my yellow beets. Each plant I had carefully sown into the soil in the spring had grown into a beautiful beet, and some fairly large ones at that.
I mean, look at them...so exciting...and there are still a few in the garden...

After last years' devastating harvest - I got only one tiny beet about the size of a golf ball - this was so encouraging.

I think keeping the beets caged and away from the pesky squirrels and birds was key to this year's successful yield... 

Anyways, I just had to share...I am so excited!

Any great moments in your garden?
