In the spring, mom and I planted some veggies. I put some in containers in my apartment, but we also planted vegetables in her garden.

Well now it’s harvest season. Here’s an update on both hers and mine.

It seems Suspicious Corn isn’t ready to give up on his quest from last week to find out why I’m doing “simple projects” so he continued to hassle me this week. Despite his interferences, I efficiently used left over fabric to sew shorts and a sweater.
