Most people's vegetable gardens are out of view here as well, but some are in visible spots.  I see several corn patches out in plain view.  

I don't grow flowers because I have such a small space for garden, and I would rather use it for tasty things.  However, I do enjoy people's flower beds when I'm walking.

Garlic scapes . . .

It's fun to check out the neighbors' gardens when you can.  When I'm in town I sometimes take the time, but most people's vegetable gardens are out of view, in back yards and side yards.  People tend to plant flowers on the street side.  Along the rural roads, where I live, more gardens are in view, so I drive by slowly to see how they're doing.  Some folks seem to have had more luck with tomatoes this year than I have.  My vines are on the small side.  I let them run, but usually that's no problem--smaller fruit but more of it.  The staked tomatoes in other gardens look pretty good this year. 

I have staked my cherry tomatoes, though, along the front of the house, and they're starting to come in plentifully.  Sweet 100s. 

My squash are looking great, finally, as are the onions and leeks.  Everything is a little tardy, as we had such a cool, wet spring.

Daniel, your picture with an ear of corn in it make me hungry.

On my walk this morning, I took my camera to get pictures of the attractive small gardens in my neighborhood.  Only one turned-out well, the little "Bee Happy" garden:

Daniel, the photo made me laugh and share with family and friends. 

Don, your surprise party sounds like a splendid event, one you will hold in your memory. Your last piece of pie tops it off nicely. 

Having family and friends around me gives me more pleasure than I can express. 

Kathy, I would love it if this group could join Don with his pie and coffee and a tour of his garden. Thankfully, he shares photos of the seasons.

That's hilarious, Daniel. Perfect parody of a trophy pic; love the cat instead of the hunting dog!

You know what a Yankee is?  As folklore has it, in the US, a Yankee is someone who lives north of the Mason-Dixon line. North of the line, a Yankee is someone who lives in New England. In New England, a Yankee is someone who lives in Vermont. In Vermont, a Yankee is someone who eats pie for breakfast.

...For breakfast slice of pie and coffee with cream. Sounds yummy....I ought to try that tomorrow morning.

Hah!  It's been a few years since we made our own ice cream.  We did have some Ben & Jerry's on hand, though the pie eaters around here tend to be purists.  And as Vermonters, oftenwe have pie for breakfast.  With milk or coffee.

   Don,

WHAT! .. no homemade vanilla ice cream topping !?

That, indeed, is a grave sin.
