Backyard Fun

We have had some very lovely summer weather lately and our backyard is a great place to hang out. Check out Jason churning the compost and Kathe climbing in the tree.

We are doing lots of urban farming this year. We've had a lot of lettuce, peas, green beans, blueberries and herbs. Now the corn and tomatoes are starting to look edible. When Ike sees the tomatoes he says, "APPLES!" and tries to pick them. Corn on the other hand really does look like corn especially in the photo below. Not quite ready to eat and who knows if it will taste good. We can always turn it into chicken feed.

Our neighbors planted a beautiful trumpet vine on their side of the fence, problem is all of the flowers bloomed on our side. Good for us, bummer for them.

Not wanting to post without including a photo of the boy, here is Ike munching on some cheese...

Why isn't Ike munching on the bounty from the garden, instead of cheese?

We're so jealous of the great Portland garden climate. We wish we could grow blueberries here in Crooklyn, they're Auden's favorite.
