Smith Family Harvest


This year we planted carrots, green beans, squash, cucumbers, okra, pumpkins, watermelon, and sunflowers. So far we’ve seen no watermelons or pumpkins. We harvested one squash but it had already been eaten by upon some squirrels. We managed to get 3 healthy, delicious cucumbers but numbers 4, 5, and 6 were also squirrel dinner. . .

The sunflowers are blooming now; we still have half a plot of carrots; the pumpkins are still flowering without fruit; and the okra is producing like a beast.

Man . . . Gardening is a lot of work . . .
