vegetables for sale!

Last night Ken and the boys set up a little vegetable stand in the front yard. They were so cute out there!

See those giant chunky tomatoes? Cherokee Purples--they are yummy.
The boys only wanted to make silly faces when I took pictures of them. It's so hard to get a picture of these guys!
In between customers, Ken read to the boys. A sweet sight.

if only i lived closer...i would totally buy from your fruit/veggie stand. sadly my tomatoes haven't even turned color. way to foggy in the bay area this year i guess.

What a super idea. My four year old fnds it hard to smile too and so we know we will have a whole bank of photos from this sweet time when his face is hardly recognisable!
Those Cherokee tomatoes look amazing.
I wish I lived on your street. Even the same continent would be good!
