Thanks to some kind family friends with an awesome garden we're enjoying a sweet bounty. The kids and I picked corn, squash, zucchini, tomatoes, bell peppers, and cantaloupe yesterday morning. 45 minutes of picking yielded this...
It is literally more than we could carry! Holdyn is proving to be a very good farmer-boy. He loves the hunt for ripe veggies/fruits. Also, he love the various creatures he finds while picking! Evie and Kallie seem to be able to find any ants within a 50 mile radius, become promptly bitten, and then find the closest shady spot to "rest" and "take a water break". However, they love to help me prepare the bounty once we get it home. I love it all! I so wish that we would have planted a garden this year. It is high on my list of goals for next year, though. Especially since the kiddos are so enthusiastic. In the past any garden we had was a solo effort on my part.
So, how does your garden grow? What do you love to plant? What never turns out?
