that's a lot of green

Our garden is still growing and producing vegetables!  Sadly, only our bell pepper and okra plants have survived.  We do still have two giant tomato plants, taking up space and teasing us with lots of blooms but no fruit.

At the end of last week I picked SEVEN bell peppers and one okra.  I had to throw away several pieces of okra because it wasn't edible, I'd let it grow too long.  I really hate it when that happens.  It's crazy how much our pepper plants are producing since I thought they'd never mature.  I swore we'd save money and buy seeds next year, but now I'm not so sure.  I really love those plants!

Always with my helper!  She got a little bossy when Oscar came sniffing around and she had to give him a stern talking to. :)  I miss the days when she said, "Oat-doh," you can actually tell she's talking about okra now.

I'm so glad we started the garden this year, it's been a great experience for our little family.  It's not too late to get a fall garden going if anyone is thinking about it!
