Yard and garden work

Today's pick. The kids will snap these while I read David McCulloughs book "The Great Bridge" to them. It is the epic story of the building of the Brooklyn Bridge. We have about 7 pages left before the epilogue! It has been an excellent book, I recommend it - as well as any other book by McCullough.
First fruit!
Carol and Grant. She has a little "cut flower" garden over in the corner.
18 regular tomato plants, 4 cherry tomato plants, 6 pepper plants, 5 cabbage plants, 5 rows of green beans, and 9 cucumber hills.
Many of you remember when Joel was born! Now he is 9 and helps to mow the yard!

The swing set has certainly seen better days, but it has served the purpose.

  1. wonderful to see that you keep your children busy and are developing their minds in learning and their muscles in hard work. Great job, Joel, that's a big job for such a young boy. Those beans look so delish. We can't wait to start a garden of our own next year.
