Look how our garden grows...

We have had quite a fun time with our garden this year. We grew, pumpkins, watermelon, corn, cucumbers, green peppers, peas and tomatoes. The corn was a bust because it was ripe while we were in MI, and the peas didn't do too well either, but everything else has gone really well. we have had literally HUNDREDS of tomatoes. Neither one of us has gardened before so we didn't really know what we were doing or what to expect. 8 tomato plants is WAY too many!!! I have been canning, making salsa, salads, freezing tomatoes and anything else I can think to do with them. So next year we will only do about 5 plants I think.

One of our pumpkins grew WAY too fast, and was ready to be picked way to early. We picked this the 3rd week of August. We're hoping it lasts until October. It weighed in at 44 lbs!!!!!!

This is the only watermelon that grew out of the seeds we planted. It was SOOOOO good. It weighed in at 23 lbs!!

Our garden is starting to wind down for the year. I NEVER in a million billion years thought I would like gardening but I do. For those of you who know me well, know that I'm not really an outside girl, but this is something that I do enjoy. Can't wait for next year, we've already begun planning!

Hi Darcie, Oh I love the garden story. Now at last I have found a girl after my own heart. I loved gardening, and did tons of it until the deer began making regular trips in to check it out.
Your Great Grandpa loved gardening, but Grandpa Alger was never a gardening fan. I had tons of veggies and Raspberries (ask your Mom for that story). But when the deer even ate squash and pumpkin, I decided to 'quit the fight'.
Your gardening story is delightful, and I'm so proud of you for the work of canning and preparing the food for the table.
We are proud of you in every aspect of your life, we think you are the greatest. We love all of you and miss you. Grandma Shirley
