Garden Fresh Iowa Produce

OK~ Our family has been blessed with a very green, full garden this year. Here's just a small sampling of what we harvested today!

Cantaloupe, Cucumbers and Carrots

And then this watermelon. This is one that seeded itself. We did plant our cantaloupe where the watermelon was last year.  We were blessed with this nice, large watermelon!

Two melons cut up and two nice sized bows of cantaloupe.

Now the test. Our 17 year old son will eat a full bowl of cantaloupe when I have paid $3.00 or so for each melon. Will he eat the melon now? It won't get any fresher than this! What produce are you enjoying out of your garden? After All, It's All In a Mom's Day, Right?


  1. YUMMMM!! That watermelon looks delicious! We didn't plant a garden this year, but boy do I wish we had!

  2. we can never get our watermelons to grow! but our tomatoes and cucumbers are doing well :)

  3. our watermelons never grow, either. It's such a shame because the kids love them. But we're enjoying our peppers and cucumbers!


I always love feedback on my blog!
