Cooper loves helping in the garden. Two of his favorite activities are digging in the dirt and watering. I have great intentions to use everything we plant, but again this year the lettuce and peas didn’t get picked. The berries were managed much better by Cooper. He has done a great job of tracking when the tomatoes turn red. When we pick a handful we like to sacrifice one to see what kind of adventure Cooper takes it on. Sometimes they make it into the house, but today it took repeated jumps over the railing. On the final jump it split open when it became wedged between the wall and fence. Now to see what Cooper will do with the carrots and pumpkins when they are ready.
