And a month later...

Well it seems like I've ignored blogland for a good month now. I guess the summer has been so busy with school, work, and other uninteresting things that I haven't had a good picture or amusing anecdote to share in a while. We've got some exciting things on the horizon for the next part of the summer, but for now I thought I'd refresh the old blog and leave you with some pictures of the garden. (Boring I know, but that's the best I've got right now ;)

Our little strawberry plants are truckin' along. And when I say little - I mean little. See below for a picture of the BIGGEST strawberries we've seen... 

(Not so big strawberries) Guess that means I'm not a perfected strawberry-farmer yet ;)

Tomatoes, on the other hand, are coming out our ears!! Good thing we love all things yummy made from tomatoes - the picture above is about 1/8 of our weekly tomato crop!

Like other things in the garden, our pole beans are struggling with this 100 degree weather with no rain. 
This doesn't seem to stop them from completely taking over the other side of our fence, though!

The big bed - all that height in the back is tomatoes ;)

Baby cucumbers are quite cute

I guess this picture is in memorial - the heat killed this squash plant this week. So sad.

My favorite to harvest - potatoes! When digging these babies out I ended up with dirt all the way to my shoulders - messy but fun!

Sorry so boring. Promise next time I post it'll be MUCH more interesting. (Promise ;)
