All week we've continued to watch our 2 tomatoes slowly turning the perfect shade of red. Boring stuff really. We had to find other ways to amuse ourselves.
One day I came across this little guy making a bed in my oregano.
A couple days later this guy was in my hollyhock sprouts kicking dirt out of the way. (I would have thought it was the same one, but the spots are different.) They've been quite the addition to the garden this week hopping all over the place.
Still the occasional frog/toad sighting wasn't enough to keep us busy, so we head back for more apples. Matthew has been asking for apples morning, noon, and night. It's all he wants to eat. He has basically ate all we picked last week. This time we pressed Poppa into service.
Matthew had a blast "helping" his Poppa.
This picture is to help show how truly big this apple tree is. Dad is around 6'1 1/2". It is taller then the machine shed it's next to. And this is only half of the tree. We got all the good apples that were in arm reach. The whole top half is still loaded with apples. I felt like the fox that wanted the grapes, but couldn't reach them. We gathered 5 grocery bags full. This weekend I'm taking some of them with me to can! I can't wait!
Don't forget to see what is happening with the rest of the kinderGARDENer's. Head over to The Inadvertent Farmer and see a hobbit house!
