Back in the spring Pat and I planted a vegetable garden. Last year Pat had tomatoes and peppers in a couple pots. They did so well that we decided to expand into what I call suburban agriculture. We've had mixed success with the raised bed so far. Carrots and radishes didn't do so well. Tomatoes have been a huge success. I've wanted to show some of our produce. The problem's been that we keep eating the tomatoes as soon as we pick them. Sometimes they don't make it into the house. The ones in the bowl below are long gone. They sure were tasty.
Our pumpkin patch has succeeded beyond anything we dreamed of. We have enough for the kids in the neighborhood. We talked to a couple parents about letting the kids pick their own punpkins. Everyone thought it was a great idea, so all I have to do is get some machetes. Think about it, kids and machetes. There's a B movie from the 50's in there somewhere (just kidding).
