Gardening & baking

If you are not into gardening or baking this post is not for you... :)

Summers it seems is just a busy as the rest of the year. We have been trying to keep the boys busy with activities, chores and yard work which makes Chris and I even busier. I had a rare minute this morning to tend to the garden, which is doing really well. I snapped a few pictures of the many fruits and vegetables that will be coming on soon enough. I am really pleased with our garden and and happy to once again have a place to plant and dig. It looks like our new fruit tress will produce 3 pears and around 10 apples if all mature without issues. The blackberry starts do have berries that are ripening. It look like we may need to wait another year for our first glimpse of raspberries, grapes and strawberries but the plants seem healthy. Last week I harvested all four broccoli plants, without any bugs. Yum. We also had out first onion and garlic. See if you can spot my little helper who is always at my side. Nicholas love to garden too, he love to pick all of my green tomatoes. Not sure how to stop this darling little pest...

We also picked our first Zucchini. This morning I promptly made 4 loaves of Zucchini and an altered Banana & Zucchini bread. Apparently both breads freeze well. The house smells amazing. Good start to a Sunday.
