Jack Frost is coming…..

19 09 2012

It is that time of year again.  You know, that time of year when you see the weather report, see a frost warning and think, “OH MY GOSH, I NEED TO GO PICK EVERYTHING!! AHHHHHH”.

We have been taking our NWEA tests for the past two days.  After two days of testing, we felt the kids deserved a break! We went outside to run, play and harvest everything we could.  Luckily we had a good day to pick with bright sun and breezy blue skies.

We harvested cabbage, basil, parsley, zucchini, cucumbers, flowers, onions, peppers, and tomatoes. Lots of yummy veggies! We’ll see what happens tonight….maybe it won’t get cold after all?! I’ll miss seeing all those beautiful flowers!

The self proclaimed trash bag ninjas. (We needed trash bags to house our massive amounts of basil and parsley!)

Harvesting parsley in windy conditions!

Squash……we don’t know the type!? Any thoughts?

An armful of cabbage!

A flower for YOU!
