Grown up babies and creepy woods






Remember my "babies" from an earlier post? Well, they're all grown up and we're enjoying the fruits of our labor. Some of the pumpkins were ready to be picked and I have a few more almost ready. We've enjoyed the tomatoes and zucchini and peppers. I never grew sunflowers before but they are really pretty and BIG! They just scream autumn to me....Then there is the "Creepy Woods" as Katie calls it. The paths are very overgrown and this week I'm going to clean all that up. We've had very little mosquito problems this year and I will enjoy some time walking in the creepy woods. I love that name and I think a cool sign should be made to post at the entrance. We're not having a halloween party this year, so a spooky woods won't be done, but if anyone wants to wander threw, you're more than welcome! I think the pic with the white flowers is a good example of how even weeds can be pretty. Last but not least is Jack's new hobby...dehydrating things. Things like cherry tomatoes, apples, peppers, bananas. I just wish I could crawl in on the tray and come out much smaller like that tomato! He was sure I was going to make fun of him on this post, but actually I think it's pretty cool...Good job Babe!

your sunflower is really pretty. The ones here are all hung over already. What does dad intend to do with the dehydrated tomatoes? I'd sign up to be shrunk, but I don't know that I'd want more wrinkles!
