garden goodness

i took these pictures a few months ago but never got around to posting them.

watermelon and barlotti beans

barlotti beans

this was a not-so-quite ripe watermelon (we've got another one coming that i'm hoping will be more fit to eat) and a hand full of barlotti beans. i was pretty disappointed in the barlottis. i watered them like the dickens but we got less than an 1/8th of a cup of harvest. i'll try them again next year and will start out earlier, but i'm not so sure they're made to grown in our hot, dry climate.

thanks lady! i miss you guys too. hope you can make the camping trip!

the picts of the little lady are just precious, by the way!

Cheryl said...

No, we aren't going to make the camping trip :(

It's not that we have other plans, we just don't think Erin's ready for the great outdoors yet. Mainly the cold night, bugs, her possibly crying at night and waking everyone up...

So we'll be staying home.
