A quick garden update

It has been a very busy few days around here.  We have attended two award ceremonies this week.  One child got a Good Citizenship and Principle’s Award, while the other got more awards than we can remember.  Summer has officially started for the youngest, there have already been a comment made about boredom, of course that was when it was time to clean up said child’s room.  It is a mess, I tell you, a utter mess.

During this past week, I have decided without a doubt that those mystery plants from the compost are indeed pumpkins.  Most have flowered and now have fruit.  We were hoping for squash or maybe a cantaloupe or two, but I guess we were meant to have a bountiful supply of pumpkins.  I think I know what the kids will be doing this fall.
