Supporting the Wild West
There is a Wild West show coming to town in September. The children next door have to earn part of their entrance cost. They are like my Grandkids and I love them. I told their Mom if they wanted to come and pick tomatoes that I would pay them. So, they showed up at my door ready to work. I gave the 3 and 5 year old bowls to pick the cherry and grape tomatoes. They were not happy about sharing one bowl. =) Then I gave the older two baskets and bowls to collect theirs in. They did not get to finish as we had a storm come up. I told them to bring in what they had and run home quick. The second picture is what they brought in. Michael picked the beans last night, but they brought in all the tomatoes. The first picture is of a baby luffa gourd. I am not sure I am going to be able to harvest any before frosts hit. We will have to wait and see.
