Harvest Time

This summer went so fast, I feel like I had no time to really enjoy the garden. It came and went before I even knew it. Last week, or maybe a couple of weeks ago (see, I really have no concept of time anymore), we went out to harvest the remains of our garden before a freeze. Here are a few choice photos-

No shortage of tomatoes here. Too bad I didn't have more time to bottle everything.
Anyone know a good recipe for green tomatoes?

A honeydew melon. It didn't taste so good.

An orange fleshed watermelon. It actually wasn't too bad. The kids devoured it in no time.

A giant bell pepper. Too bad it wasn't around at the same time as our county fair. I'm sure we would have taken home a prize for that.

Ben still loves eating tomatoes. Below, are a some pictures from the last few years. We have to get at least one picture a year of him stuffing his face full of tomato. Weston would rather eat dirt than a tomato, which it appears, is exactly what he was doing.
