Our Beautiful Garden

Ok so we planted a garden again this year, but we planted late in the season because it was still getting below freezing at night in late may. Because of that we didn't know if we would even get anything out of our little garden this year. Thankfully we have and it has been really fun. We planted a tomato plant, spaghetti squash, acorn squash, peas, and pumpkins. I also wanted flowers so I planted a few along the back and then those huge sunflowers, which personally had been my favorite to watch grow! James has been really excited about the pumpkins and we hope to be able to carve our own this Halloween, we'll see.

Here is the Sunflower almost opened! So exciting...

Now it's opened. Isn't it beautiful!!! I am so proud of how tall it got I made James stand by it so I could compare it, and because I made him have his picture taken he made me so you get to see both of us standing by it. By the way James is 6 Ft and I'm 5.3 so that gives you a bit of a idea of how tall it got. Ignore how gross we look we had just got back from camping and I wanted to take a picture while we had the camera outside.

Our cute Spaghetti Squash. I'm so excited for these they taste sooooo good!
Heres our little pumpkins, yea Halloween!

This is the whole garden area, you can see the squash forest and our huge tomato plant. It has been a lot of work but it has been worth it!!
