It's Harvest Monday- and here is what my garden grows:

(my apologies for the cell pics!)

Only thing I missed was Saturday's harvest. I was so hot and tired after finishing off the maintenance that I pooped out and took the kids in the pool completely forgetting to get a picture before I shelled all the southern peas, okra and beans that evening. My garden is looking pretty barren. But new shoots are everywhere and that is encouraging. Most of my beans are up and looking good. The pumpkins have taken off thanks to all the rain. Unfortunately they have something. I have to look it up - but it looks like pumpkin chicken pox to me. LOL hoping it wont spread beyond the pumpkin patch. I really might cry if I don't get any winter squash this year for storage!

Picture of the girls enjoying helping shell beans. They will fight (as pictured) over who gets to shell the last bean pod. :-) Love that they love to help me.

Here is what we were up to this weekend - The tile backsplash! The granite went in in March, and we had compleications that held over through April, but since May there has only been the excuse of other things to spend our money on. It finally drove me to the brink and now we have the tile backsplash YIPEEE! It looks pretty good, too!

Now, on to tackle those closets and get rid of the junk in my house!

Thanks to Daphne for hosting Harvest Monday!

  1. My cucumbers are weird spot marks on them too. They have had it for months now, but they seem to outgrow it. The bottom leaves die, the new ones grow on. So I figure I'm just not going to worry about it.
