Everyday Adventures in Havachon Heaven

The Good, Crazy, & Adorable Life of One Havachon Puppy

Early Backyard Harvest

I’ve been so excited about our early summer tomato harvest that I had to share these photos with you.

We raise most of our veggies from seed – our radishes, tomatoes, and peppers usually start producing late summer into early fall. (They’re just babies now!)

But this year I bought a hanging cherry tomato plant to get an early start. A few weeks ago it was loaded with little yellow flowers – look at the boutiful harvest it’s blessing us with now!

So far we’ve already picked over 3 dozen tomatoes! I go out every morning and pick 8-12 fresh tomatoes almost every day. We pop them like snacks! It’s so wonderful not to worry about pesticides – just pick, rinse, and eat.

We’re setting records this week with 100+ degree humid temps, so I garden early and get back into air conditioning by 9 AM. But it’s worth it – these fresh veggies, along with colorful flowers, are my favorite things about summer!

And this is MY favorite thing! 😀

Another Little Quirk

This silly puppy can’t figure out where onion skins are going when I peel them straight into the garbage! She sees us throw stuff away all the time, with no interest from her at all.

You talkin' 'bout ME??

We cut the innards of peppers right into the garbage…nothing.

We shell peas and throw the shells into the garbage…nada.

We shuck corn over the garbage…zip.

We even peel garlic over the garbage, which kinda looks like peeling an onion…zilch.

She watches us do all of this, with no reaction whatsoever.

But for some reason when it comes to onions, she comes charging into the kitchen and stands at attention, watching those skins fall, her head going from onion to floor, awaiting what she thinks is its inevitable fall into her territory. If she understands that none of these other things are going onto the floor, what on earth is it about onions that sets them apart??

Quirky little puppy! 🙂
