Look what opened up in the teeny tiny garden yesterday, and this one is not a volunteer! Nope, this is from a pack of mixed sunflower seeds I bought back in the spring and sowed a little row inside the garden fence. Wish I could keep this bloom forever, and look, a honeybee!
This sunflower opened today. It is pretty too, but that first one looks like sunshine.
Seeing a honeybee is a good thing. But, honeybees scare me. Mama, bless her heart, used to call me to say, "please tie up your hair if you are going to be working outside today. Did you hear about the woman who went to the mailbox and a swarm of bees lit in her hair and stung her to death. Bees are attracted to dark hair", mama would warn me. Mama sure worried about me. Wish she was still with us. I miss her every day.
These were in the teeny tiny garden today. First time EVER growing onions. I am so tickled over these...and the squash! Where have all the squash bugs gone? Reminds me of a song. :) We are getting lots of squash!
By the way, that first big tomato from the garden was not that good. It had a watery taste. Maybe too much rain? Hopefully the taste will improve with the others.
Okay, let me show you my kale. Promise you won't laugh?
Probably whatever ate up the row of kale also ate up all the squash bugs.
And, those yard long green beans...well there is probably miles of beans to be picked...miles! I am overwhelmed with long beans. When it cools off a bit late this afternoon I plan to pick all those beans.
Thank you Debby Ray for being my newest follower! :)
Better get busy. It's time for Poppy to get home and as hard as I've worked today...mowing in this hot humid weather...I'll be darned if he is going to catch me sitting down, like I have had nothing to do. (Something else I inherited from mama).
