This has been an incredibly full week. I finally started digging up the scummy pond---and got it removed. It was an old tank that had rusted through. I didn't know what it was-the previous owner used a lot of "cast-offs" for projects around here.
We have had the grandson up from Arizona for 8 days. They left last Sunday and I can't believe how much energy a 3 year old has. He's amazing and funny and so eager to learn. He loved helping me in the garden--here he is harvesting lunch. He was quite amazed when these potatoes turned into Mashed Potatoes. It's funny when a little kid has that "light bulb" moment.
It must be love, if I let him steal the few carrots we had this year.
All varieties of my tomato plants are fully loaded---but NOT ripe. Despite our extremely hot July, it just wasn't enough.
The melons are also huge and UNRIPE. Sigh.
|The Scummy Pond ended up being over 3 foot deep. It's a bigger job than anticipated!|
The fall broccoli is coming along okay, but it's doubtful I'll get any before we leave for our final trip.
The nights have started cooling down and most mornings find us with a HEAVY dew. Within a couple weeks we'll have frost. Looks like a no tomato year. Rats. So close!
Another shot of the carrot thief. He made trip after trip out there to steal them. Brat. I miss him already.............
Hope you all have a wonderful weekend.
