So, I have somewhat neglected my gardens. :( They've had a hard time this year for some reason...it's just been so hot, and I got my shade cloth up kinda late. The huge garden spiders don't help either!
Anyway, our cucumber plant took over all the flowers in the side planter that I planted forever ago. I let it wind itself around the plants (mostly just the greens) because I'm about to plant fall flowers there anyway, and I can't believe they survived the summer anyway! Well, it was a big bushy mess and so it was fun to lift up some vines and VOILA-- we found 4 big cucumbers like this one hiding underneath! And a bunch of small ones too. It made me feel good that not EVERYTHING was fruitless this year.
I'm wrong though. We got TONS of artichokes, and a few handfuls of delicious strawberries, some herbs, and lots of tomatoes...so I guess it wasn't all fruitless. I'm learning.
Abbies such a goof! :) Last time I tried to grow cucumbers the plant got all white and not much came out of it. (it did make my melons taste like cucumbers though-weird)
I thought this was so cute...Joey's use of the stroller lately. He LOVES soccer! I think it's so funny... him caring for his soccer ball like it's a baby!
