Hot Harvest Day with a Helper

It's a swelteringly humid day. Despite the heavy rain this morning, things didn't cool off much.

The end of a long day is brightened by a little helper who takes on the task of bringing in the harvest extras to our kitchen. Normally I try to keep the kids out of Eric's way on his busiest day of the week, but today Sylvia asks for a special chance to help out.

And help she did. You know Sylvia's growing up when she does more direction-following than climbing, jumping or randomly hitting objects with sticks she's picked up off the ground.

Now I just have to figure out what to do with all these tomatoes...
