SPIN Kids Tickled to Tackle Tumbling Tomatoes!

Click any photo to enlarge!

The Spin Kids returned for harvest day on Friday.  75.9 pounds of zucchini, squash, cucumbers, green and purple dragon beans, lettuce and egg plant were picked and delivered to Valley Outreach.  The zucchini like to hide under the canopy of leaves where they grow and grow and
grow until they become quite monstrous in size.  So we searched and searched to pick all the 6 to 8 inch zucchini squashes - perfect sizes to cook up for dinner. 

 
The tomatoes keep trying to escape their cages and were falling in the aisles and on their neighbors.  But a few feet more of twine wound around the stakes and the tomatoes are back under control!  No telling what they will do next week, though!
