But lo and behold plants are amazing, resilient things and I am flat out amazed that this year will yield far and beyond what we'd originally thought. We returned from vacation and realized that many of these amazing heirloom varieties were holding on for dear life and would likely produce. Since then we've hauled water like crazy and had some rain recently (that made all the difference, there's just nothing like actual RAIN). I went out to the garden yesterday and was exceedingly excited to find:
|Several little baby yellow squash.|
|An entire row of purple beans are doing well and flowering!|
Darran informed me that purple beans turn green when you cook them.
I informed him that we would eat them raw then, because we are eating purple beans!
|We picked this, our first zucchini ever on 4 Acres. I sort of felt it needed|
memorialized somehow. Can you bronze a zucchini? Guess we'll just eat it.
Mostly, we are grateful for the priceless family time and the adventures we've had while trying. And...
Summer's not over and we're not licked yet!
