we went out to our garden on monday night, like every other monday this summer, and decided to do a 'practice harvest' to see if our carrots and potatoes are ready to pick yet.
we pulled up a couple handfuls of carrots and a potato plant, and we were so thrilled with what we found underneath:
all of the work we have done in our garden this summer is actually paying off!
it looks like we will be able to do our real harvest in just a couple weeks.
can you tell the boys were pretty pleased with our haul, too?
now i just need to figure out how to make pickles with our (smaller) cucumbers, because the idea of making his own pickles was the only thing that motivated chet to get out to the garden each week.
and on a completely unrelated note:
at the start of the year, i wanted to make a running goal for myself to work towards.
i decided that i was going to try and run 1000 miles in the year 2014.
everyday i would mark on my calendar how many miles i ran, and at the end of each week i would figure out the new total.
apparently i didn't set my sights high enough though, because i completed that goal a couple days ago.
on august 24th i reached my 1000 mile goal.
sooo.. now i'm not sure what to do!
