Future Farmer ?

Saturday morning , Little Froggy and I ventured out to let the chickens out of the coop and feed all the critters. Little Geronimo was strutting his stuff and I got the photo to prove it (LOL).

Gathering the tomatoes was next on the agenda , but we discovered that Ms. Crew was being slack on her job again.

Little Froggy tried to help her up , but she was out , so we just let her be.


Then he found his first orange mato , as he calls them and the gathering was on ...........................................


after he checked his first tomato carefully (LOL).


He wanted to pick the baby green tomatoes , but Nana told him he needed to pick the orange tomatoes.

Here's one Nana !

Then he spotted a squash bug and that held his attention ,
until ...............................

he found this ant hill. The ants were really fascinating , he watched them for awhile.

As we started back , we found Ms. Fern checking out the tractor.

He gathered 2 small cucumbers and the salad tomatoes in his basket. We've got so tickled at him lately , all summer he has been trying to eat the salad tomatoes. He doesn't like them , he'll bite into one and spit it out , but he keeps trying to eat them (LOL). He loves fresh salsa and anything made with tomatoes , so I'm not sure why he doesn't like the fresh tomatoes. It maybe the texture. I'm sure he'll like them as he gets older and he may just be a " future farmer ".
Hope you had a wonderful weekend !

Hi JoAnn ~ Thanks !

Hi Teresa ~ I hope he'll enjoying pulling weeds in the future too :)

Hi Flassie ~ I've tried pounding Ms. Crew in the ground , but everytime it rained , she fell down. Soooo , I thought the heavy tire rim might work , but nooo , she still falls down everytime it rains. I think her dress gets water logged or maybe she doesn't like the rain and starts nipping the cologne again (LOL).
