Me: LJ, please carry those zucchini and cherry tomatoes to the house for me.
LJ (Little June): I can’t! It’s too much to carry!
Me: Perhaps you could make two trips?
LJ: Never mind, Mommy. I know what to do.
I wasn’t too keen on having a big vegetable garden this year. I was rooting (get it?) for a more simplified version, but the hubs insisted on expanding. I’m still up to my eyeballs in zucchini. I have enough butternut squash to last a lifetime – maybe two.
And this photograph makes it all worthwhile.
