Babies are beautiful.
Every time I'm with friends I get to see pictures of their grandbabies and I oooh and ah because really, that's what you do over babies. Whether they're yours or not.
So, since I don't have any babies in my house, thank goodness!!
And since I don't have any grandbabies yet, thank goodness!!
Today I have pictures of my yard babies...
Across the road, in the orchard, we have baby peaches.
And baby apples...
In the garden are baby summer squash. Cannot wait for these guys to ripen--makes my mouth water just watching them grow!! Sauted in butter... oh yumz!!
And baby zucchinis.
Only half a million so far.
Not bad. ;-)
And these guys? These are heirloom Mortgage Lifter Tomatoes. Heirloom plants that I can save the seed from (this fall) and then replant real early next spring. They're named Mortgage Lifters because it's fabled that you can sell the excess and the proceeds with lift your mortgage. If only that were true... But they sure are cuties!! (I'll keep you posted about the yield.)
Baby peppers. These lil nubbins are the cutest at this age...
Okay, so this one isn't from my yard. It's the baby field corn that I'm watching grow on my morning walks...
This is probably my husband's favorite: baby burpless cukes!! So fuzzy and adorable!
The whole family is watching these guys grow. Pickling cukes. Yes, they mean work later on, but when that work translates into pickles, no one groans too loudly.
They don't remember what it's like making pickles, but they'll soon learn. *grin* It'll make them appreciate good pickles that much more!! :-)
So tell me, what are your favorite yard babies?
