The Garden

Watching our garden grow has been one of the highlights of the summer...I know it sounds like we are a bunch of old people, but it really is pretty fun and rewarding. It all started last summer when my mother-in-law wanted to plant some tomatoes in our garden. Ever since I've been hooked and this year Luke and I decided what to plant. So far this year we have gotten about 7 zucchini, 8 cucumbers, 1 tomatillo and 1 pepper. We are just waiting for those tomatoes to ripen up and then we'll have gobs and gobs of tomatoes. Anyone want some?

There are no words to be said other then I love this picture because its so funny.

The view of the rapidly growing garden

I have been waiting for these cherry tomatoes to ripen up for so long. The other day I had 5 and they were amazing! Cant wait for more.

Our cucumbers. The best way to eat these are peeled and sliced with fresh lime juice and salt!

Our huge pumpkin patch! It's hard to see but we have a pumpkin in there. I don't even know what to compare it to because it's getting really big. It's bigger then any sports ball that I can think of. We're really hoping that it makes it for Halloween!
