The Fruits of our Labor

Here is a quick post while the boys are still sleeping. The garden that we planted has been doing great. The zuchini, squash and radishes have all come up. Sadly the sugar snap peas and swiss chard was eaten by the rabbits. Also our peach tree had about 10 huge peaches on it that we were going to let ripen over the weekend and when we came back they too had been eaten by the birds. On Sunday we took our zuchinni and made some super yummy zuchinni bread. Now if you think that sounds unappealing you couldn't be more wrong. It is so sweet, I even like it better than bannana bread. If you would like some just let me know we have tons. Here are some pictures, I have to go now Jack just woke up.

Hi Crystal we miss you guys too. How neat you have a garden, I can never grow anything. Your boys are so cute. Hudson is getting so big.

I love the picture of Hudson sitting in the little chair.So cute. He is a cute guy :) We pulled carrots and radishes out of our garden not to long ago and it was an exciting time for the girls. Mostly just the picking part. They didnt want to eat them.

Congratulations! A successful garden is one of those things that just makes you feel good and satisfied with your work. I'm sure the zucchini bread is awesome. I have to admit I was nervous the first time I tried it, but I love it!
