Missed one...

My garden is not producing much this year, so far. The tomatoes remain stubbornly green, the broccoli keeps blooming before it's remotely big enough to harvest and the peppers are this close to being ready. But zucchini and squash, that we have. I try really hard to pick them when they are small and tasty and use them up. By me, I mean Rick who goes out every so often and brings in armloads of things from the garden. The other day he and I shredded and froze about 6 quarts of zucchini. But he apparently took a few days off and....


We grew a fat baseball bat. That's my dad helping my three-year-old hold it. After the photographic evidence, it went home with Dad to feed the chickens. Not really fit for human consumption. I know it's not the biggest one you've ever seen. I just think it's hilarious that I didn't see it in the garden until it had reached such proportions. Also, more proof that zucchini are nothing but liquid green, Rick picked it last night and laid it in the kitchen, and it spent the night leaking water onto the counter. Tomorrow, if time allows, I'll show you some pictures of something else rather spectacular that snuck into my garden. That's the joy of being a really bad gardener, I'm always surprised when anything survives.

Lastly, for anyone who actually reads this blog and remembers my fluffy dog Buck (think part collie) check this out...
Can't be Buck!
Now that's a haircut.
