Garden Update

This year’s garden is growing with vim and vigor.

The weather is the only difference–but what a difference it has made.  The tomato plants currently are over 6 foot 5 inches.  This is the first time in my life where I have to stand on my tippy-toes to pick tomatoes!

The rest of the garden is growing just as well.  The green peppers are producing 5 to 10 peppers a day.  This is only going to increase over the next few weeks.

We have picked over 180 zucchini.  The leaves are so thick we cannot weed (which is a blessing actually!)  Each day I make a crock pot full of ratatouille and freeze what we do not eat for the winter.  Our freezer is going to be very well-stocked!

And we had to make a new perch for Eugene, our guard falcon, because it was too thick in there to see him.  (I think he looks dashing where he is!)
