some fruits of our garden.

mmm....i think my favorite thing in the whole world is a home grown tomato (even more than chips and salsa. i know, it surprises me, too). leaves store bought tomatoes in the dust. even when they have an ugly crack in them.

and i learned another new thing from my dad this year. i guess if you plant zucchini and squash by each other, they cross pollinate. so my zucchini has been a little yellower than normal, and my squash is a little greener than normal. ain't genetics fun? this makes me want to go back in time and watch Mendel.

Yes! We planted the poblano peppers by the jalapenos this year...whoops! The jalapenos were pretty mild, and we got a bit of a shock when the poblanos were hotter than usual. Great fun.
