Worth grows a garden

So Worth's garden needs a little face time on the ole blog.  He has been working so hard out there.  Going out every night to talk to his beloved plants, and make sure there are no weeds growing up the spindly stalks and vines.  He has 24 tomato plants.  He promises canning is in his future although we don't have a canner and I am not sure he knows how to do it, but you can't really every doubt the boy.  Every time he sets his mind to something he generally always accomplishes the goal.  I am pretty sure I will have beautiful mason jar pictures filled with tomatoes soon!  BellaRose just adores going out to help Worth in his garden.  She is such a helper and you should hear how she says "squash", it really would melt your heart.  She does a good job helping but has not quite figured out when the vegetables are ready to be pulled off the vine.  She sometimes pulls prematurely but I am pretty sure we will have enough to spare.  We also have loads and loads of peppers and basil.  Which make the best Chicken Holy Basil EVER! I know that the bottom left picture of BellaRose is not really in focus, but I love her focus so much I just had to share with you!  Please enjoy our garden and if you around please come on over and get some fresh produce!

that is gorgeous!!!! our garden is slowly falling apart. the deer discovered that we left the gate open and had a party the other night. fun stuff. at least we're giving back to the "community," though adam is swearing he's going to start hunting out of the upstairs windows.

I really want to hear her say squash! My Dad would love Worth's garden, he always had then and has a really big one this year, I always liked helping him go pick stuff too!

I sooo wish I had remembered your recipe for this- basil was taking over so it found it's way to the mulch pile.... oh but give me a week or so and we'll be back up and cooking your recipe! and how sweet does she look in her green dress! It was so fun to see you and BR and see that her little personality s as sweet as she looks :-) just like mom :-)

The garden sounds wonderful.. and you are so right about Worth.. at least what I know of him.. if he wants to do something or accomplish it.. he does! You are the same way! = )

BR is adorable!!

Oh I love these pictures! BellaRose is so beautiful! I love the green dress.
Go, Worth! I'm hoping for another bag of extra basil this year.

SUCH a great garden... I am so jealous.

The garden is once again, beautiful. BR looks like she loves it too. You don't need anything for canning but mason jars, a big pot with some water and a stove. Adam's family always canned the old fashioned way. Have Worth call him if he has questions. I wish we lived closer, I'd come over and steal some of your produce!

I love the thought of BR and Worth in the garden together. It's such an awesome learning experience for her. Worth and Ben need to can together cause Ben has been talking about making jelly with the loads of rasberries we have right now. And tell Worth I'm very impressed by the garden this year....but really I didn't expect any less. :)

So precious.
It's perfect once again. I look forward to seeing it every year.
And, now that i'm not at camp, I will def. be coming over to enjoy and get some veggies and to hear BR say squash, I must hear that very soon.
