Garden Giants

Giants in the Garden

We have virtual giants in our garden in the pumpkin and tomato categories. With this spring being cold and wet, a lot of our seed failed and a lot of things were drastically delayed but, what did grow has grown well. We are anxiously awaiting full ripe “ness” on these guys. In this first image the tomatoes don’t look so big so we had Peter hold his hand next to it to give a good idea of their size.

Praying for a Late Frost

The tomato in the back seems big enough to fill a quart jar with tomato sauce and the two in front would fill the next quart. Now we are just waiting for some ripening and praying on a late frost so we can bring these tomatoes into the pantry.

We normally have an abundance of pumpkin but this year we only have two. A very large one and a medium one. The 5 gallon bucket was sat next to this green pumpkin to let you know how big it is. We can’t wait for pumpkin pie from him.

We also harvested a couple buckets from the macintosh apple tree yesterday.

Evidently, we are not the only ones who like these apples, as you can see that some other critters have munched on a few. These apples are not giants but they are a real good size, which is fortunate as this tree is regrouping after a couple rough years and is just now producing again. Can’t wait for the pie from these too.
