One of the things I love about this time of year is seeing how our garden has grown. I have to give credit to Ryan for this one. He loves to plant things and watch them grow, and is always anxious to get seeds and seedlings in the ground in the spring. He also makes sure our garden gets watered, and he does most of the harvesting, and even cooks much of what he harvests. I just get to eat the good stuff. This year has been our most successful Idaho garden. We have had more squash and zucchine than we and our neighbors can eat, quite a few tomatoes, some beans and peas, cabbage, lots of herbs, a couple of apples and a couple of nectarines, and we even got a few ears of sweet corn, which we had tonight with dinner and it was delicious. We have several pumpkins growing that may actually be big enough to carve into jack-o-laterns or make into pumpkin pie in another 6 weeks. Very exciting.
