Did you enjoy your Halloween? While you may be spending your morning cleaning up small candy wrappers and trying to get your kids out of bed after they crashed after their sugar high – I’d like to ask you a question:
It’s a beautiful summer day outside, yet my mind is on fall and Halloween?
Because, this is what I discovered growing in my vegetable garden this morning…

Is you home decorated for fall yet? I am still working on getting my house ready for the fall holidays.
Well, I have to admit, that in the past, I did not truly understand the allure of vegetable gardening. Sure, I had to grow my own plot of vegetables in college for my horticulture class – but that was for a grade. I also dutifully helped people create their own gardens, but I never had one for myself.
That was then, and this is now….I am completely hooked on vegetable gardening! Each morning, I go out to see how my plants are doing and the kids hurry home for school and check to see if there have been any changes. Their favorite thing to do is to find the newly ripened cherry tomatoes to eat – they never make it to our salads.
It has been six weeks since we planted our seeds directly in the ground and you can read about it in my earlier post, “A Vegetable Garden – Completed” if you like.
