Well.. they were there...

so we picked them.

Two big zucchini, that is. We made four loaves of zucchini bread, ate one the second it came out of the oven (might I remind you it's only me and two boys ages 6 and 7 here), ate a little more than half of one for breakfast this morning, gave one to my parents, and half of one to the honey (who's trying to lose weight.. sorry!). If your zucchini math is up to snuff you'll know that we've got just about one left here at home. I don't think it's going to last the day and expect to come home from clinical tomorrow to none.

Since the garden is so sparse this year, I was happy to use SOMETHING. There are tomatoes on the vines, but nothing pickable. The pepper plant is half hidden under the zukes, dunno how that's doing. I tried to do eggplants in a container, it was a nice big, healthy plant until I didn't water it often enough. It's alive, but not producing.

I miss the garden, there's just no time... but enough depressing news, check out this cutie!
