I just had to share a picture of Chipmunk with the first vegetables out of his garden this year. A pretty good squash and zucchini. Can you tell how proud he is? All of their hard work is starting to pay off and I'm afraid that soon we'll have more squash than we know what to do with. Anyone got any good recipes for squash???
Not only is this garden saving us money and giving us lots of great-tasting fruits and vegetables; I find it amazing what kids will eat when they grow it themselves!
I hope everyone has a wonderful 4th of July! We'll be enjoying the day by going swimming, grilling out with family, and watching the fireworks display our small town puts on each year.
P.S. Thank you for all of the nice comments on Monkey's train cake. I did make it myself and it was pretty easy, honestly. Growing up my mom always made us special birthday cakes each year and I've vowed to try to carry on this tradition. I can't cook at all but I do love to bake.
