Bounty

A few photos of things planted this growing season, that we are really enjoying these hot days.
We seem to have a grasshopper problem right now, they are devouring sunflowers and bean plants. We finally have a few small jalapenos growing on the mass of plants we planted...it's taken a long time for them to get going.

We've eaten so much sweet corn that it's now time to pick and freeze.

Peek-a-boo! Can't wait...there are at least 30 - 40 of them right now!

In addition, we have an apple tree that has really delicious red fruit on it! This is all pretty exciting as last growing season was a dud, due to the early hailstorms that almost took out the trees, but they have made a fair comeback! Applesauce this weekend, along with painting!
