With all the heat, humidity and rain we've been getting you'd think we live in the rain forest along the Amazon river...no, we live in Wisconsin. Oh, and did I mention the mosquitoes? Last summer was so cold and I guess this is the year to average it all out. Below you'll find pictures we've taken throughout the summer of 2010.
Storms coming across the field.
A double rainbow followed that rain.
Clearing after the storm.
This is our daughter Emily standing in a corn field after a storm late July.
What does all this rain lead to besides lots of mosquitoes? A garden that is yielding like no tomorrow!!! I give my daughter Angie lots of credit for these next pictures. She battled loads of "skeeters" to take these for me. In one swat she got 5 at once!!! Thanks Angie!
This is that yellow pumpkin in a previous post. Angie took along a quarter so you can see size. This is going to be one big pumpkin.
I'm pretty sure that this is a different peanut pumpkin that I've blogged about.
All in all I think we'll have no troubles eating our 5 a day this winter. Our biggest concerns will be harvesting the corn starting in about a month.
