Garden Glory

To say our garden has been successful would be a gross understatement. Our tomato plants are growing so big that we are going to have to get much bigger supports for them very soon. We have already had our radishes come and go, and they were great, but our zucchini plant has taken off. It is so enormous that it has snuffed out our carrots and parsnips and the beets are struggling to get some light past their 16 inch leaves. We pretty much eat Zucchini of some sort everyday, and our grocery bill has certainly been helped by us having fresh produce all the time. We are really excited that our green tomatoes are starting to ripen. The couple that we have had so far are so amazing, juicy and salty, oh they are so yummy and way better than what you can find in the store.

If you have ever thought about doing a garden, go for it. While it is a lot of work, the benefits far outweigh the detractors.

This giant zucchini was hiding from us. The kids thought it was so cool that it got so big. The cherry tomatoes never even make it inside. They are always split up among us and gobbled immediately.
