And here's todays photos. The garden has grown quite a lot in 2 weeks. All that rain and very hot days combined seemed to have done wonders for the vegetable garden. Here is the corn.
Some baby corn are starting to grow.
The various types of squash are doing well too.
This one will soon be ready to pick.
and a tomato starting to turn red
The bees are hard at work helping to make sure we get plenty of summer squash, winter squash and pumpkins!

In July we also raised tadpoles. We made a habitat for them from a bird bath bowl. If you look cloself you can see them at the edge of the bowl and one is even climbing out of the water. That one already had legs.
Here is a photo of one of the tadpoles, we had about 30 of them.
Here is a tadpole that's got it's legs but it still has a tail.
And here is a tiny frog. It no longer looks anything like a tadpole. It seems as though they change overnight.
A tadpole and frog next to each other on the side of the bird bath.
And here is a photo of one of our children catching the tadpoles.
