The September Garden...

Juicy, juicy red cherry tomatoes. Oh how I don't want them to end! I don't think they know they're supposed to, since we're still finding more than we could possibly eat. But every September we know the garden tomato will soon fade away. We don't talk about it much, of course, hoping that our silence will fool those big bushy plants into growing more and more of those little gems until we say goodbye until next year.

These tiny little pumpkins were new to the garden this year. We've been having fun decorating the house with real pumpkins that we actually grew! (Okay, I think they might technically be called gourds but they look like baby pumpkins!)

The rhubarb was HUGE this year. This was a tiny, sad little thing two years ago that I found in my back yard at our new house. I wasn't even sure it was rhubarb so we transplanted it to my mother's garden and...voila! The biggest rhubarb plant I've ever seen. It's just too bad I don't like to eat it...

but it sure is fun to grow it!
