The Evolution of Our Backyard

Screen Shot 2014-08-27 at 11.36.46 AMimage-6We have lived in our house for over 4 years and this is by far my favorite summer in our backyard. We’ve finally completed our dedicated eating space, complete with a new table and trellis for shade and privacy. Our plants are filling in and we have so many bees this year because of all our colorful flowers!

We seem to have miles of butternut squash vines, all filled with squash. I’m hopeful to be stocked up for the fall. We’re still waiting for Bear’s giant pumpkins to do much. Right now we only have 2 the size of baseballs.
