Oops!

Austin's been in Utah for over a week for work and while he's gone it's my job to water the garden (see this post).  Well, he never said my job was to pick the vegetables too!  SOOO.....I didn't know to do that.  He called tonight and I said "It's been raining for days.  You should see the okra in the garden!  It's SOOOO big!  Close to a foot long!"  His response was "You're supposed to pick them!  They aren't good when they get that big."  Oops!

Here's the "Kelly Okra" next to the paper towels so you can see the size of this monster!  The "Austin Okra" is the normal sized one on the left.  Ha!




On another note, check out the crazy sky last night when the sun was going down!  If you look really close, you can see our SUPER TALL okras higher than the fence.

Elizabeth,
Austin could totally help David build one! Set up a weekend with him and we'll come up and you, Gracie and I can "assist"!

Now, THAT'S funny! I am so jealous you have a garden! We have ZIP for outdoor space. I have attempted some potted gardens that worked out, but it's not quite the same! Love going to visit my Grandpa for the fresh veggies!

Anyway, awesome job Garden Girl!
