i've said it before, but there is nothing better than home-grown grapes (which nash refers to as 'strawberries' and which are nothing like those 'things' you buy in the grocery store) and evening sunshine. i'm going to miss these vines and this little crooked house (although i'm quite anxious to get out of the ghetto)...if...oh, the waiting...

haven could not be captured as she was frantically shoving fistfuls of grapes down her throat, burrowing into the vines in search of the next bunch, and creating her usual sticky mess ev.ery.where. oh how i love my icky sticky dirty squawky girl.

we also harvested a ton of garlic this year and prepped the garden plot for next year (provided there is a next year). i can't wait to grow my own grape tomatoes, tomatoes, peppers, cucumbers, corn...my mouth waters...

Mmmmm yes homegrown grapes are delicious! Those vines grow so fast you can hardly keep up with all the grapes!

I can't believe how TALL Nash is...it seems like just yesterday I had him in my lap playing with an unplugged keyboard as I was talking to customers.

I am jealous. I need to learn how to garden (and yes people do actually garden here).

Nash does look like a big boy in these pictures. It's been too long since I've seen him!

What's the latest on Bevie's plans??

I have this strong urge to go buy me some grapes now (especially if they came with a cute little boy to eat them!)...maybe i will plant some next year?
