Slave Labor

One day they will be doing everything for me, and I can't wait!! Right now I have them clearing out rocks for more garden space. (What is crazy is that they really do enjoy working on it!) I tried to take pictures of the garden but they didn't come out since the flash isn't working. My cucumber plants are huge, like 9 feet in the air. I have a lot of little cucumbers and one big one that we will get to eat in the next day or 2. I have about 4 jalepenos growing that will be ready this week to eat and we have eaten basil that we grew. I also have zucchini, pumpkin, butternut squash and watermelon plants that are growing big but haven't produced any fruit yet. I'm clearing space for a couple different types of tomatoes, bell peppers and more cucumber plants that should produce in the fall. I never knew I would enjoy having a garden so much. I wake up and the first thing we do is go look at our plants to see how big they have grown. I know I am way more excited about them than the kids are, but they do enjoy them as well:)

I had that much fun last year with my squash, so this year we made the garden planted like 10 different things and I only have like 2 plants left now =( maybe I will have better luck next time.
