Our Gardeners

They're much more excited about taking a picture together than allowing me to get a shot of the fruits of their labor.

Sorry about this shot. I thought I had it turned so you could see it better. Daddy had the boys wash the tomatoes when they came in the house.

We are right in the middle of the peak of our plants' growing. We have tomatoes galore, green peppers, some hot peppers, onions, yellow squash, (pickling!) cucumbers, and zucchini that love to flower yet no veggies have sprouted. I've always heard that if you let kids help in the growing of vegetables they'll be more apt to eat them.

This is not always the case, I've found out. But I'm not giving up. Lou has definitely expanded past his carrot-and-celery-stick-only phase. He's tried peppers (red, green, yellow and orange) and cucumbers, but it's because I let him dip them in ranch! I just don't know why he won't eat tomatoes--maybe he's not related to me...
