I had to share these pictures of our tomatoes. These are just a few of what we picked being weighted. They are beautiful this year.
Angela picked this odd tomato in the Food Pantry Rows. There were a couple that look like this.
Today we tried to corral the kiddos into a activity with out much success. They were too busy having fun to get them together. We decided to dig the potatoes but most of them were rotten. The row evidently gets too much water for potatoes. The ones on the top of the soil under the straw were fine but if they were in the soil they rotted. The kids of course were totally unexcited about rotten potatoes. Oh well, maybe next year. I received a few ideas on how to hill up the rows so they aren't so wet.
Sunflowers in the Sunflower House. The little yellow finches are loving all the free seeds.
Bean Tunnel progress - Yes this is the bean tunnel. I know you can't really see the beans anymore. The birdhouse gourds have taken over. It is so pretty. Now all we need to do is to wait until the stems shrivel up. Then they will be ready to be cut the gourds from the vines. After that they need to be cured for several months. Then the gourds will be ready to make into fun projects. It looks like we will have a lot to dry for a project next spring.
