Well, with Fall officially upon us, I am feeling extremely grateful for each evening that passes without the gift of frost! Not sure how much longer we will squeek by, but I'll tip-toe as long as I have to :-)
This week brought us the excitement of our very first bell pepper and some long lost carrots (they were lost in the Tomato Jungle) as well as the last Honey Boat Squash.
I didn't get a picture of it, but I had a helper in the garden this week, too. My helper is a 6-year old whirlwind of energy and she helped me harvest a ton of tomatoes and then promptly ate most of what we harvested (luckily, she let me weigh most of it before she inhaled tomato after tomato)! She is scheduled to help us with our upcoming potato harvest and I hope to catch her in the act in at least one photo :-)
Alright...here are some pics of the official harvests of the week...
