Happy 9th Birthday Leonard!

Where do the years go? Our little bean is 9 yrs old today. So me and my boy celebrated by going to Steele Indian School Park before it got too hot out. He had a ball. We are taking him to the pet store shortly - maybe even a new toy?! Happy Birthday punkin.
And from the garden this morning....I am going to have to start delivering pints of tomatoes to the neighbors....

Saturday's Bounty. So, the unknown thing looks like miniature butternut squash to stopped growing so I picked two of them. We also harvested a bunch more cherry tomatoes and two zucchini (one normal and one deformed). More zuchinni have ended up in the compost pile than in our bellies. From reading, I think they were not fully pollinated and that's why they are staying tiny. I have thrown 4 of the green peppers into the compost pile as well...hopefully we'll get at least one before the plant is done. Oh, by the way - I was going to assist with the zucchini pollination this morning and was pleasantly surprised to find a BEE in the flower! Yay - Mother Nature!! I decided to wait another week and see what happens - maybe the bees are just finally finding my house :) Jeff and his girl, Magda. This is absolutely the most exciting for her: pulling Jeff on the skateboard. She must have Husky in her somewhere because she totally goes ape-noodles when her harness goes on. Going.....

Wow, what a difference a few weeks makes. I have snipped a few cherry tomatoes from the plant in our backyard and it looks like the green tomatoes in the front garden pictures are just starting to turn.

Something happened to my zucchini...they were looking great now they are shriveled and yellow. ???

Mom take a look and tell me what in the world could this thing be? I planted nothing like this and the vine has honestly taken over the entire garden area. It has these fruits? vegetables? all over it... could something have cross-pollinated?
