On Vacation

We are leaving on vacation in a few days, so I will not be blogging until August!

Summer Squash

My garden is still growing, but not producing a lot. I harvested the beets way too early. We did pick this beauty of a squash the other day and then grilled it. YUM! I wish it was as big as this picture looks because it was so good!
I thought I had some regular sized tomatoes growing, but it turns out they are cherry tomatoes. I got the plant from a friend so I had no idea. Cherry & grape tomatoes are good, but I enjoy regular tomatoes much more. Now I am not so sad if they are ready for picking while we are on vacation.
If I look at all the work I have put into the garden I am a little disappointed, but if I remember that it was all an experiment then I feel like I've done a good job! I will start my garden earlier next year and be more selective on what plants I pick. My gherkins & bean plants are growing like crazy...not sure if either will produce anything!

Patriotic Bento

My daughter saw the 4th of July bento link up over at Bento Blog Network and asked me to make her one. I quickly threw this together.
