Love em Lenny, im a dab hand with the garlic, spuds onions cabbage raspberries blackcurrant and more but cauliflower always was a disaster for me.

I thought, "they're sharp." And now I can see why. The flash seems to have made the cauliflower look quite unappetizing, however. How did the combination handle for you?

The Rose and Number 3 for me, lovely shots all of them.

Thanks for all the kind comments - much appreciated

The equipment combination handled really quite well David, I did override the AF on a few shots but in terms of quality I couldn't have asked for much more

I have a very low success rate with Cauliflowers too Flan - I planted them in 4 locations this year and the only ones that survived the Pigeon attacks were hidden in amongst the Broad Beans (which have been devastated by some sort of black fly infestation).

The Rose seems to be a favourite - I think I caught it lucky with those water droplets

I got fed up with caterpillars and pigeons so I made a cage out of 1 x 1 pine and garden netting. I have smashing sprouts and cabbage this year.

That courgette flower looks rather sinister! But those mini-cucumbers and blackcurrants are enticing . And you've managed to produce good backgrounds for them, too - not so easy in the fruit 'n veg patch in my experience.
