The 2019 Garden Competition is going strong. The harvests are not as big as we had hoped, but we are happy with what we do get.
So far, Jake has taken the lead in the biggest harvest with his summer squash. Jake is second with his cucumbers and I in last place with mine.
Jake is also the front runner for most oddly shaped.
Joe’s homemade refrigerator pickles are delicious. They are “sugar free” and he even used a “secret ingredient” to give them that extra spice.
Jake made squash cookies which forced us to split the Best Recipe category into two: sweet and savory.
Jake will be making squash pickles for his savory entry and Joe is waiting for his pumpkin to grow so he can make a pie for his.
Although he has rearranged, lost and buried much of his gnome village, Jake still has the Best Decorated category locked as well as the Biggest Plant with his massive squash.
Joe’s garden has been hit hard by drought and cat attacks, but he’s still in the lead for Most Colorful.
My harvest has not been as plentiful. I am last place in every category. But…I am hopeful that my watermelon will save the day and get me the Biggest Fruit trophy. Although, Joe is determined to take that title with his “experimental cucumber”.
