A friend and today's harvest

Today started out a bit rough, but when we ventured outdoors, everything got better...thank goodness! E found this lovely green caterpillar whom he affectionately referred to as "Buddy". He kept him for the day and was insistent on giving him leaves and slices of apple to eat. I'm not so sure "Buddy" ate anything, but it's the thought that counts. E found a good spot to let him go when we went back in the house for the day.

Vic expanded the garden this year and it has produced a lot of green beans and cucumbers. Although our tomatoes started off strong, they have not done well with all the rain we got at the start of the season. However, the kids have had cucumbers and green beans with their lunches at least a couple times a week this summer. We're all going to miss our fresh veggies...there's nothing like them!
