Catchin up

A few weeks ago the kiddos and I went to visit a friend in a nearby city. Hubby stayed home to take care of the dogs. The second day we were there we drove to Northern Idaho to her families lake cabin. We had a blast, and the weather was great;) For anyone who remembers that we went up there a few years ago and it did nothing but rain:) It was a record rain for August that year. Anyway it was so relaxing to just sit and play cards and visit(even though she whipped me in Rummy). But I will get her next time;0. Here are some pictures of the trip.

Tomatoes Galore

Our tomatoe plants are giving us some and more. the first picture is of yellow pear tomatoes and cherrie tomatoes.

In this next picture are romas and Beef steak tomatoes

We have had our case of Blossom Rot, and wind knocking the plants over. But all in all we have had a good crop. I have been making salsa, salsa and more salsa. I finally had to stop eating it because hubby said I smelled like garlic. It sure was good though. Made with our tomatoes and peppers and onions out of our garden.
Our Big Max Pumpkin has been laid to rest because of an Alder Box Bug infestation. Hopefully we can keep them away from the Jack-Be-liitle and our cantaloupe and watermelon.
