A Trip To The Garden For Marilyn

Pic was taken about a month ago. The Tomato crop was good but the size of the tomatoes was down because of the drought. Most of this picking was tennis ball size. The beans were mostly a bust. The sweet potato crop was really good. Too good. We have them in a pile on the basement floor. Here she picked one plant. It produced 11#'s worth.
She made a "pumkin" pie with some sweet potatoes a week ago. It was easily the best pie I've had. That from a man who doesn't care for pumkin pie all that much.

Congratulations, at least you cropped something. I can't wait for more.

It all looks good enough to eat!

Many of our neighbors who got fair tomato crops a while back are suddenly seeing their tomato vines full again. Can't wait to reap some of those rewards. I know true Americans love apple pie but isn't there something about pumpkin pie too? It is just wrong not to like pumpkin pie. Try some whipped cream and chocolate sauce over it. YUM!

Doesn't care for pumpkin pie, all that much? What?! Oh well, all the more for the rest of us normal people.

Uh Marilyn can be jealous of my Sweet Meat squash and I'll raise her four jealousy chips for her sweet potatoes, no make that five, and two for the "complaint" that the tomatoes are tennis ball size. You mean they actually come larger? Ever?
