OK, I acknowledge that I am a bit obsessed with our veggie garden…

…but we are just having so much fun picking tomatoes, cucumbers, basil, and the rare carrot from our garden. The kids love eating the tomatoes and the cucumbers now that they harvested them themselves. And it is just amazing to see what we are yielding. 

I thought that last week would be the peak with over 50 tomatoes and 10 cucumbers. Today we harvested over 20 cucumbers and 80 tomatoes, not counting about 10 tomatoes we lost to critters who bit into the ripest ones – lesson learned: we need to pick them as soon as they start turning red. 

Addendum: on Sunday we picked another 4 huge cucumbers, 4 nice carrots and 49 tomatoes!!!
