In the original post Mike asked us to let him know what we grow in our gardens to aid him in some research he's doing - so those who've contributed have done it in the spirit of being helpful - not boasting.
Of course there's no compulsion to take part, but I do think it's unkind to make judgements about the people who have responded to Mike's request.
There are (believe it or not ) threads that I rarely or never contribute to, for various reasons, but I wouldn't dream of criticising those who do.
As for feeling it's like showing off to post pics of our garden - I don't feel like that -there are far too many shortcomings in my garden for it to be showing off - but there are times when I'm so chuffed with something I just want to share it - sometimes I grab OH's hand and drag him to look at it - sometimes I grab my camera and share it with you lot
