|Some of our bounty. The green squash is an acorn squash I think. Not sure because the seed packet was for a white, scalloped squash.|
Two of four
The lambs quarter is starting to get big enough that I now consider it a weed. Tomorrow I will strip the plants of their leaves and freeze them for future use. Then I will pull them up or chop them down. They tend to have a very strong root system, so I imagine it will be chop them down. I definitely don't want them to go to seed.
Now it's a weed
My flowers are looking pretty good in the bed by our front porch. The others, they look okay. I think the ones by the little house are just too shaded. Even the hostas don't seem to like it over there very much. The sunflowers in the garden have started blooming. It won't be long until I'm fight with the squirrels for control over them. Real squirrels, not Jeff and Elijah.
|They are taller than me now...|
|...and they are blooming!|
We are doing most of our work in the morning, including the mowing.
|Look Mom, one hand!|
