I went outside today to check on the bounty of nature in my own backyard. I found plenty of it!
Swiss chard... more than we'll ever eat!
Beans creeping up... yeah, I planted them too late. I'm just hoping for a harvest of some sort before the first frost!
Huge cabbage. I picked this one soon after this picture was taken. It weighs about two pounds.
Apples that look good enough to eat. In the background is our huge potato mound, both red and blue varieties.Apples that were too good to resist taking a bite out of
Gorgeous patty pan squashes-- our dinner tonight!
Heirloom tomatoes finally ripening
A darling little girl playing in the dirt
A sassy girl flying high!
And there you have it-- our new (to us) swingset! Thanks, Freecycle! And thanks, Les, for donating your unused swings! The girls are having so much fun playing on the swingset now. Except for the time Rose decided to spin around in the swing and she conked her head pretty good on one of the posts. She didn't have fun then.
