Growing Our First Vegetable Garden - Part 8

The Harvest:

Wow, I am just loving our garden, everyday there is something ripe, fresh, colourful and ready to be harvested.  I can't believe how much those zucchini's grew, it seemed they doubled in size overnight!  I am going to have quite a few zucchinis to give away, and I am looking forward to sharing our bounty with our friends and neighbours.

Fishing (with Joey and Elsie)

The following three pictures were taken by Elsie, thanks so much Elsie!
 I'm so glad she captured this moment, sometimes I feel like I am always the one behind the camera

We started fishing this summer and I must say that we are really enjoying it.  It is very relaxing and peaceful and gives us something fun to do when we are camping.  Elsie and I don't fish much as we usually end up chatting, reading magazines and taking pictures (when I remember my camera.....) Joey showed us an awesome 'secret' spot that has never disappointed!  Every time we go, we all catch at a least one lake trout.

Someone's Been Playing in My Garden

 I wonder who it could be? Do the dirty paws give it away?   That's okay buddy, I love playing in the garden too :)
