Garden Update - Week 10

Tomatoes ripening on the sill

Here are some of our tomatoes from the garden. So far, Mark estimates that we've had about 4 pounds worth and we've really enjoyed them. Tonight I made crispy baked chicken with rice and sauteed squash and green beans from the garden. I also made a tomato and cucumber salad though the cucumbers were not yet from our garden. As you can see below, we have a little while to wait. Can you spot the cucumber? It has been a long time since I've grown cucumbers with my mom so I forgot they grow like the squash -- from the flower!

I love the curly-Qs on the vines. I think I'd be taking pictures of those things all the time?! =0)

Thanks for the email! I never even knew you looked at my blog. Now I know! I think I saw you in Wal-Mart one day, but didn't speak cuz I didn't figure you'd have a clue who I was. Next time, I'll speak! =0)

I like the photo of the tomatoes! I have trouble with photographing red things. I can't seem to capture all the shades of red so many red things appear "flat." Great job!

I also think I saw you in town one afternoon, in El Charro, but didn't think you'd know who I was either. :0)

E & Tammy, I hope you say hi next time! But what's El Charro? I don't know that place!

Thank you Jim, Neva and Sakiwi for your visits. :)
