We are at that place in the season where the veggies are starting to wind down. I am getting around 10-15 lbs of tomatoes every other day and using most of that to can tomato sauces. We just lost our cucumbers to powdery mildew but still have some zucchini, squash, carrots, melons, tomatoes, tomatillos, and peppers galore!
These were my two garden helpers yesterday morning as we picked another round of tomatoes for some more delicious roasted tomato spaghetti sauce. My 2 1/2 year old still likes to pick them a little yellow/green so I gotta watch that one!
One of the big sisters noticed all the fun and wanted to get in on it too. She loves to dig and eat fresh carrots (way different than store bought). So the kids went to down digging out carrots, you should have heard them hollaring about who got the PRIZE carrot (ie the largest one!) My daughter likes the purple carrots almost as much as I do.
