Holy jumpin' Jesus!! Our zuchinni plant has been slowly eating the rest of the backyard. We planted two plants, one of which didn't take off. But, the plant that was left has become a monster. Everyday, we get at least seven little zuchinnis and one big one. But, yesterday, we got three that were so big...well, let's just say that there were some jokes about judging happiness by the size of the item in your pocket. Would any local readers want some zuchinni?
Our corn looks like it's going to be equally plentiful. Grace has been very good about tending it for weeds and water. She's got about eight stalks that took off, each stalk having 4-8 ears for now. We should be able to eat it in a week.
Lexi's tomato plants are drooping from the weight. I don't eat much tomato, but I popped a cherry tomato in my mouth today and it was divine. Still warm from the sun and sweet.
