Squeek and her pumpkin

As discussed before, Squeek prefers to romp around the vegetable garden rather than stay on her side of the fence. Since she insists on being in there I’ve decided she might as well be useful (other than chasing rodents with fluffy tails).  Sitting politely next to one of our volunteer pumpkins you can get a scale of how big it is. It’s the largest pumpkin I’ve ever grown. Well, I don’t know if I can say “I’ve grown it” since it came up on it’s own and I’ve done nothing for it. I believe the variety is Howden.

Bucket of Food Gathered Yesterday

Yesterday we harvested a tomato that weighed 1lb 3oz. It’s the big one in the photo. It’s also the largest tomato I’ve ever grown, so I’m quite proud of it.

This year, even though it’s been unseasonably cool, has been a lot better than last year, and for that I am grateful.
