Garden Produce


Last night we went out to pick tomatoes and peppers. We ran out of daylight. I hardy made a dent on the tomato plants. They are huge! It's actually hard to find all the tomatoes. I'm almost afraid to go back out there.
The big box has bell peppers and anahiem peppers. The blue bowl is full of jalapenos. We've shared quite a few peppers already this year.
Roma tomatoes are in the yellow bowl and the "mega" bowl from Pampered Chef is full of big boy tomatoes. And my large pot is full of cherry tomatoes. And there are so many still to pick. (We wish we could share with you Stacey!) Salsa time...here we come!

Here's our big boy. He's now 2 months old.
And then there's a little bit of our crying 2 year old in the background!

ND Petting Zoo

Just kidding, it's not really a petting zoo, but it's pretty close.
One of my best friends (Lacey) from growing up in Tuttle, ND lives on a farm in the next town over. She has two super cute kids, Kennedy (5) and Britton (2).
They have chickens, ducks, geese, 2 goats, a miniature horse, 4 dogs and lots of cats. (And little frogs from all the rain.)
We headed over one morning to see them all. My sister Sally and her family came with.

Sam and Kennedy were the first brave ones to feed the animals corn.

Here's Adam feeding one of the goats.

Here's Winnie, the little pony. He was a little feisty. Little Livia got her fingers nibbled on.

Good job Emmee.

Cassee is quite afraid of most animals. This is the closest she would get.

Adam found a new friend.

And a new toy!

Best Buds. Isn't it amazing how kids can become best friends in a matter of minutes?

They were aiming for Kennedy's mouth I believe!

Lacey, Britton and Kennedy. Thanks for letting us come to your house and for sharing your animals (and garden produce!).
