Here's some of the tomatoes we have out of the garden the other day, the bottom pic is to show the size variation.

Dug some Yukon gold potatoes. Nice size, but only 1-2 per plant, less than half of last years production. Ate em too fast to take a picture.

Nice tomatoes - and I'm really jealous right now!

I started to post some pictures of what's left of my tomato plants but there's no need. Just picture a wire basket around a completely stripped dead stalk sticking straight up and cut level with the top of the basket. I moved my garden a few miles down the road to my grandpa's place so I could expand, and the deer were merciless.

The drought in June didn't help either (spring dried up).

On the plus side, the slaughter starts next month when deer season opens!!!!!!

This was building year. Next year will be nice.

Our garden is doing pretty well all in all. The pictured harvest is typical every few days.

Well, not to gloat but we got our first deer the other day too. Nice young fork in the horn. My son took him at 50 yards with the M1 Garand. Its too much gun for the small deer we have around here but he had built up a load for it and it was the gun he wanted to use. The round went through the lungs and passed through the deer but very little damage to much meat. All in all a great shot.

Congrates!!! It's looking like a very bountiful fall, and I suspect your son is pretty excited right now!
