Sunshine Season


  • I planted the rest of the garden this week and watered everything in good.  Tomatoes: paste, cherry, heirloom; Squash: butternut, tetsukabuto, jarrahdale; Peppers: sweet green peppers; Roots: beets, radishes;  Beans: green beans, wax beans, peas; etc...
  • I put in the seeds I'd saved from my Jarrahdale Pumpkin.  I have now completed the pumpkin pie cycle: grow pumpkin, harvest, save some seeds, make pies, plant seeds to grow more pumpkin...
  • I made a pie for dessert last night (we still have some of last year's pumpkin down in the freezer) and it was so good - I really think those Jarrahdale's make the best pumpkin pie - smooth texture, rich color, creamy...
  • The rhubarb is at it's full glory this time of year.  I've made sauce, crisps/cobblers, and a pie already.
  • The hummingbirds found my Homemade Feeder!  The boys keep running inside to tell me when they've seen another one.  Yea!  
  • The boys are spending most of their time outside: busy playing in the sand pile, climbing trees, rolling down the back yard hill, and generally being boys : )
  • The flower gardens are blooming nicely - poppies, irises, lilies...   I get a flat of pansies every year.  I love these orangey ones.  They have a lovely smell almost like roses.  I like to keep a little vase of them by my bed to give me sweet dreams ; )

Eva Girl..
Kenny wasn't able to get the garden cultivated for our vegetable garden..So,
we improvised. I bought 7 plastic tubs and
filled them with soil & fertizer. I have 4 tomatoes, 3 squash, and 3 cucumbers[the cucumbers are in the corner of the tubs of squash and I intend for them to run down?]. They are beautiful.. Not as nice, as having the large garden.. But.. makes us happy!!!
Your garden sounds lovely.. Enjoy the fruits of your work..Happy gardening.
