I love tulips!  I never knew there were so many varieties until we moved into this house and they all started to bloom!

"K" is here!  Now we're home and getting used to being a family of 7!

It was early.  I was up to pick up our basket.  As I walked out the door I saw the grass frosted over.  It was so pretty, I had to go back for my camera.  I'm not a big fan of the colder weather, or the rain.  Or especially the snow that I know is coming.  But I love the frost.  And I love the leaves changing colors.   And I loves pumpkins and cute scarecrows.  And I'm so excited to have time to hang pictures and paint my kitchen, without feeling like I need to be outside pulling weeds.

We have a young boy who is currently LOVING Curious George.  So we've been reading A LOT of them.  But after reading so many, I've come upon a ... curiosity...  for lack of a better word.  When the "Man with the Yellow Hat" knows the propensity of his Monkey to find trouble when left to himself, Why does he leave the monkey alone so often?

How Our Garden Grows

Once we fixed the watering problem, it grows extremely well.  Especially the zucchini.  Let me know if you need some (and live close.  Because I don't think it'd make it being shipped)!
Here we have our Artichokes, then peppers (bell and jalepeno), then beets, cucumbers that are barely getting started, green onions that are being almost completely covered by 2 of our zucchini plants, then carrots (the only ones that are growing from planting entire packets!), then the corn (that is taller than I am in a lot of places!) and last a struggling butternut squash and a small pumpkin plant that is in no way small!

On the other side we have watermelon, then cantaloupe, tomatoes (19 plants with a lot of green tomatoes.  Any ideas on how to make them turn red?), green beans, then more zucchini followed by more corn.  Then we have a couple of volunteer winter squash (we're guessing pumpkins) and more zucchini (also volunteer).

More Friends

Are you tired of deer pictures yet?  I'm not, so I'll keep posting them.  A cute fawn!

2 Bucks!  At the same time!

And a family of quail (N calls the babies quailings!).  I love our backyard!  I love our fun friends!  (Until one of them eats our garden.  Or our fruit trees.  Then we're definitely NOT friends!)

In Our Backyard

Not quite up to the moose my uncle gets, but still pretty cool.  Until he (or one of the others {we've seen 2 different does}) goes near the garden.  Then it's definitely NOT cool!

Can You Guess?

We just got back from our camping trip.  Can you guess where we went?
