A Few Pictures

Gardening has been slow this year. 

Had to replant the squash after the vine borers had their fill. I have them under guard (from me and Larry)

The squirrels demolished almost all the sunflowers this year. A couple left, for now. We didn't get the mammoth flowers from the saved seeds of last year. I heard another person had similar results - cross pollination from planting different varieties close together. 


Hanging out at the fence spreading rumors.

I made them a small run for some fresh foraging. It's accessible to both pens and I can segregate as needed. 

This is from a picture of Goose. I couldn't make her hair-do work, so...

...still, turned out pretty nice. 


  1. That turned out great! What a wonderful old-timey toy that could be for kids...

    Your tomatoes look great. This 90-100 degree heat is killing ours. I read that many vegetables will bloom, but not set fruit at these temps.

    I love your run, too. Looks easy to manage. The only basil I planted drowned in the umpteen inches of rain we had. I didn't bother to replant, since I mostly use it as a companion plant.

    Was your mammoth sunflower a pure strain? If it was a... whatever it's called, they tend to not grow true to the parent plant.

    Take care.

  2. I am a new follower of your Blog - I too have a Blog and I would love for you to become a follower of my Blog. Here is the link:

    I love photos like you have on your Blog - seeing the different farm animals and anything that is related to farm type stuff.

    I just love looking at all of your photos of your Chickens and other photos as well. Your Sunflower is just is one big huge Sunflower.

    Happy Farming
