An unexpected harvest

Let's say you're going on vacation for a week or so.

If you have a Roma Tomato plant in your garden, do not leave it unattended.

If you do, when you return, the plants will be loaded with fruit.

Loaded with fruit that looks suspicously like.....

Yellow Pear Tomatoes!

Not the Romas I was anticipating. Not even close.

So much for delicious homemade red sauce.

Any recipes for Yellow Tomatoes?

Oh, and those Red Bell Peppers I planted?

They're sneaky too.

If you turn your back, they produce these......

My guess is that they're really Anaheim Peppers.

Any recipes for those?

Well, at least my other tomatoes are behaving themselves.

I think it's Salsa time!

Photo highlights from a family camping weekend at Huntington Lake.

Nathan captaining a rented boat out on the lake.

A refreshing dip in the lake.....toes only! (It was very cold.)

A beautiful day to be out on the water.

My turn as captain.

Happy boater!

Hanging out at the campsite, playing DS.

Camping is hard work!

Breakfast time.

Huntington Lake Regatta
(I was amazed to see so many sailboats on a mountain lake.)

A quick paddle in the lake before heading home.
