This Summer’s Garden

We had great success with our garden this summer. In June we planted Indian Corn, squash, carrots, cucumbers, peas, lettuce, onions, basil, carrots and bell peppers. Here’s what it looked like right after we planted it.

Here’s what it looked like in July. The corn grew so tall!

We were able to harvest a lot of vegetables and enjoyed eating them this summer. We had the most fun harvesting the Indian Corn. It was like opening a present each time we picked an ear of corn and pulled back the husk. There was so many different colors. They were all so pretty! Here’s what they looked like.

We gave most of it to friends and are using the rest as autumn decorations around the house. We will save some of the seeds to plant next summer.
