My harvest helpers

Two things have caused chaos in my garden this season: First, the unpredictable weather. The next, my helpers.

Having two harvest helpers means new challenges for me, who's trying desperately to keep my garden going in my spare time. Usually they drown a plant (or more likely, themselves) in their sweet attempts to water the garden. Other times, it means finding my produce in the most likely of spots.

Like green tomatoes tossed around as balls in the backyard.

Or cherry tomatoes floating in a pitcher.

Or purple beans floating in a puddle.

Or tiny radishes lying, forgotten and shriveled, on the pavement.

Funny how they don't want to help pick my weeds...
