Tomatoes, pumkins, and weeds... OH MY!

Rachel here. It's been difficult keeping up with the garden while we've been out of town. We're lucky enough to have a great friend who watered it on occasion for us, and was happy to be paid in squash and zucchini to puree for her wee tot. :) As we prepare to head out again this weekend, I decided to take a peek at the veggies to see what was up. I was MORE THAN thrilled to see that after 6 years of living here, we've finally been able to grow a damn pumpkin! And there are MANY to boot!The tomatoes are also coming in nicely. I was able to pick quite a few cherry tomatoes, and the larger ones should be turning red in the coming weeks.The loot we're taking to My Jen's house this weekend with us! :)Along with veggies we have tons of weeds and randomness. Here is our pile of tree limbs that Bryan will be cutting for tree blocks for the girls. If you remember this was the particular venture that earned me Lyme disease... from which I can happily say I haven't felt any pain in a couple of weeks! Hurray!
We also have some type of veggies attempting to grow onto the girls toys and randomness on the back patio. Bliss.This used to be the girls' garden... flash back to the Hoda and Kathie Lee adventures from the spring. This summer has been SO EXTREMELY HOT AND NASTY OUTSIDE that it's received ZERO attention. :(Can't wait to play catch up outside... once the temp "cools" down a bit!
