Well, we ended up being gone for two weeks, and it turns out that the garden survived just fine without me. Of course it helped that my mom hauled water while I was gone. She wasn't supposed to do that, but she did. I guess that was her way of paying for all the cute squashes that she got. Here's the before and after. Some of the squashes are taking over and I already see several pumpkins starting to swell. I was picking those cute 'one ball' squash, and noticed a big zucchini too. Those were so good to eat after eating road food for two weeks. Ugh, I hate traveling. I also picked a cute little cucumber and more turnip thinnings. I forgot to take a picture, but there will be more squash in my future, I'm sure.
