An important gardening lesson...

This is what happens when you don't check your garden every day this time of year! It's been about two or three days since we last checked the veggies so we went out this morning to see what we could see. Here's what we picked today:
23 cucumbers
13 potatoes
4 zucchini
4 jalapenos
2 kohlrabi
1 green pepper
a bunch of pea pods

We are very thankful, especially because the deer have been having a heyday with our corn, carrots and melon. Our green beans are ready to pick in the next day or so. We are concerned with one thing: we'll be gone for about 6 days next week. I think we need someone to pick for us while we're away!
