Sales are slow today...another neighbour just mowed the lawn...I picked cherries and am pitting them so I can freeze them - 4 cups are done.
Different is somewhat strange and not all that well accepted by the status quo! Thus the same thing goes on HO-spit-ally as a shot in the dark ... black sabbath! It is a Dei when unknowns encroach!Hope you feel better soon @ChemGal
My melons are "just" flowering so I doubt I'll get anything on them...cucumbers flowered a while ago so there is a very slim chance I might get some small ones yet - I wasn't too worried about getting lots as I'd planted the wrong kind (according to mom when I had told her what seeds I had)...I really need to get out and start pulling carrots and potatoes - different type of carrot this year (mom's seeds, I didn't have to buy any)...I pulled a few onions this morning - gave half to the next door neighbour. Dreaming about what I'll do different next year.
I hope you feel better soon!I'm not doing so well. Had a really bad throat attack yesterday, scared me pretty bad when I woke up. Haven't felt well ever since, throat feels raw. Wondering if I have a cold or something, although if that's the case it's mostly just hitting my throat.
Chemguy is out in the garden for me today. Pulling out a bunch of plants. Some peas went past the stage where they taste good, although got a decent amount of fresh ones earlier. We don't bother freezing them, those are some of the things he is pulling now - they are by the squash and I think he's going to go prune off a bunch of the little squash, we did some of that earlier. Broccoli crosses are in pots, those are going too. They long since bolted, after a few harvests, we left the tall flowers out for the bees for a while, but the pots were only getting watered by the rain for quite a well, so they are dry now.
He's finding some interesting stuff - 3 bees sleeping in a flower - 1 bumblebee and I think 2 are squash bees. He's seen his 2nd tussock caterpillar. I haven't seen them before, suggests to me I should be a little more careful as my legs do often brush up against the plants when out there I I suspect I would react fairly strongly to one. I tend to be more aware of all the little creatures out there than he is though.
