Garden miscellany

We planted a few veggie starts late this spring.  So far, the crop has been pathetic.  Erin's showing our first (and only so far) squash. 

I think she's singing to it.  We made a small batch of squash pancakes which were delicious.  We also harvested 3 barely ripe cherry tomatoes.  Slim pickings here, folks.  Good thing there's an awesome farmers market here. 

We also set the girls digging in the back yard.  Never too early to start on chores, right? I have this idea we'll plant some fruit trees back there - one apple, one pear, one cherry, one orange.  Then the birds will have plenty to eat. 

Of course, there are always work breaks for silliness.
