Veggie Garden Changes

One of the fun things about having our own vegetable garden is that I get to see the outliers of the seasons.  The weather is one thing, but when vegetables choose to grow is sometimes another.  Sometimes a pumpkin appears in your garden out of nowhere (really) in June.  Sometimes you get a dozen healthy…
