AU Football & Miller Family Farm

Auburn Football
Only 53 days till the kickoff of Auburn's football season and we are definitely looking forward to it!

Miller Family Farm
Emily convinced me to create a raised bed vegetable garden in our backyard back in the spring. It was quite the project for the both of us, but it is paying off. For the past month or so we have started reaping the benefits, mostly in the pepper department, but have had some cucumbers and cherry tomatoes. In the middle of June things started popping (squash, zucchini, herbs, watermelons, cantaloupes, tomatoes, etc.). Emily is proving to have quite the green thumb when it comes to veggies and luckily Maggie has not gotten into the box (the pie tin deterrent is working). We think we put too many plants in the box, as you can see from the picture of our "vegetable jungle". Even with the crowdedness, things are flourishing as you can tell...

Here are two massive zucchini
Here is the large squash (note the Vanna White presentation skills)

Here is one of the cantaloupes (1 of 4 we have) and a watermelon (1 of 2 we have). Next time we will plant them earlier I guess.


  1. I am extremely impressed with y'alls veggie garden! Tried to grow one at the old house, but Lefty kept digging it up! Sorry we missed the canoeing trip, maybe next time.
