The pumpkins are doing well in the back corner. I cut the vines back a bit today because I don't want them to take over where the sweet potatoes are. I am the most excited about the sweet potatoes. I can't wait to see how they are doing. Things are looking good above ground, so I hope there is lots of growing happening under the ground too.
Joash is quite good in the garden once again (now that the plants are big enough that he can't step on them). He can name most of the plants in the garden, though he has tasted very little that has come from the garden. He likes to help pick beans. I pick a handful off the plants, hand them over to Joash, and he bring them to the bucket at the end of the row.
We also found out we have a nice blackberry bush in our tree line and Joash has eaten quite a few blackberries. He like to pick those off of the bush himself, so I have to remind him to only take the dark ones. I found an apple tree in the back of the property with nice looking apples on it, so we will have have to see if they are any good as the fall draws closer.
I really do enjoy eating things I have grown. And nothing tastes quite like beans fresh from the garden.
