What a great gardening summer!

I think we were blessed by the gods and goddesses this year to make up for last summer's fiasco. I had a lot of success with my crops. I finally learned not to sow my carrots too early, got a fall crop of beans and snap peas in early enough to produce, had endless cukes and sungold tomatoes, and had the most beautiful Brandywine tomatoes ever. My only real flop was kohlrabi. I still haven't put my veg. garden to bed yet!
How about you? What was your best success and your disappointment this year?
