Mini Pumpkins for Food Day

Today people in our country celebrated Food Day with the goal to eat more healthy. I went to the grocery store, and the first thing that I saw was a display with an enormous amount of not-so-healthy food - candy for Halloween. But on the opposite side of the candy were several bins with various sizes of pumpkins. So, I bought a couple, one little white one and one little orange one.

Then I made my way over to the pet aisle to purchase "healthy" dog food for my elderly Shih Tzu and cat food (I assume it's healthy) for my mama cat and her two growing kittens. When I arrived home, I just had to go check on my square foot garden. The squash plants are really big, and right now the squash are itty bitty yellow ones - several of them. It seems like my eggplant plant grew big all of a sudden. I didn't think it was going to pull through the hot summer, but it looks like we might see some pretty eggplants soon. A square foot garden is a little work when you're starting it, but it is well worth the organically grown fresh vegetables.

Those little guys are so cute, I bought the same little pumpkins just a few days ago. Your garden sounds wonderful, there's nothing like home grown! Thanks so much for visiting with me and for your nice comment:-)
