This week I started my 3 week vacation (for the first time in 4 years..! (Bliss)
and at the same time summer decided to come to Sweden (Extra Bliss).
Suddenly the green house is a green mess and the pumpkins have finally taken off.
Using a sentiment from Vanessa at A Fanciful Twist:
This entry is not for those who just see "a bunch of squashes".
The little guy below didn't realize he needed to get bigger before turning color,
he's only about 10 cm wide (he's supposed to be 3 times that size).
But hopefully it doesn't mean that he is rotting, just that we're getting one
in a more table setting friendly size.
This last one is the first one I really have Jack-o'-lantern hopes for.
She's not much to look at size wise yet, but that deep green is a good sign
and holds a promise of many many weeks until she's ready :)
By the way, no - I'm not just waiting for summer to be over (I promise!).
I am enjoying the zucchinis, peas, lettuce and spinach (but still no tomatoes yet).
We make great big salads, we throw some steaks on the bbq,
we drink wine and soak up the sun.
I just never have the presence of mind to bring out the camera at those moments :)
