The Harvest

Well, the weeds took over much of the garden this year but we were able to get 3 crops of green beans, a bunch of watermelons and cantaloupe, a few pumpkins and a TON cucumbers and a TON of gourdes. A couple of nights ago we decided to go out and pick anything that was left in the garden so that Jed could mow it up and be done with gardening for this summer. I have attached pictures below of the kids walking through the weeds that are as tall as they are looking for gourdes. We all had such a fun time, it was like a little treasure hunt and wherever you turned you found another cute little gourd. We filled the wheel barrow and then some. It was all Jed could do to get it back up to the house. Happy Fall!

Holy Gourds!!
You could set up your own road-side gourd stand. Sounds like a project for Gavin.

Hey Gav -- I think you should talk your dad into carving each and every one of those little things! Think of how much fun that would be!! Looks like a great crop! I'll be waiting next spring for you to till up my garden, Jed! Looks like you know what you're doing!
