Many Hands Make Light Work?

I think I would have to modify that quote. Sometimes many hands make harder work but great memories!

Maggie asked Dad to put up a small shelf over her bed for more stuffed animal storage. Dad didn’t even have the door open to her room before he had two smallish helpers!

My favorite thing about this is that they didn’t even ask IF they could help, they knew Dad would find some way to include them because he always does!

How Does My Garden Grow?

We have baby corn!! I am so excited! Last year our corn did not survive this long - but that is another story (you may want to ask Kirk about that!)

We have Bodacious Sweet Yellow corn, Oaxacan Green, and Smoke Signals corn with cobs forming and Strawberry Popcorn growing steadily! Much of the corn is now over 6 feet tall.

Here are a couple of photos of my little green tomatoes, Romas in the first picture and Cherokee Purple in the second. So far, much to the little boy's disappointment, no tomato worms! Last year we went out each morning and used water guns to shoot the worms off into a bucket of soapy water. If we don't get worms soon, we may have to find another target!

Chocolate bell peppers:

Now if they only tasted like chocolate!

Watermelon, growing, growing...gone! (cause we LOVE watermelon!)
This is a Black Diamond Watermelon for my husband -  you're welcome honey!

Daphne's Day

Even though she was mourning for her favorite playmate, Maggie, Daphne managed to have some fun while here last Tuesday. She and the little boys - who were thrilled to get all of her attention - hunted roly polies and inch worms.

I know this is a terrible picture, but look at the color of this inchworm. He was almost see through.

FRitW and I were out earlier this morning weeding the flower bed and found a little group of roly polies so we went back and there were still a few there!

A fun time was had by all! Oh, and Maggie did come in and play with Daphne, FRitW, and MT before Daphne had to go home.
