This morning, we were going to pick the corn,
pumpkins, peaches and some cantaloupe.
While I was waiting for my husband, I was out
in the garden, and in my sunflowers, there were
so many hummingbirds. I have never seen so many.
I couldn't get pictures because they were all fighting.
I am going to go out early again and see if I sit, very
still I will be able to get some pictures.
This is the wheelbarrow full of pumpkins. Not
as good of a crop as last year. But nice nonetheless.
Of all of the things we grow, I think having a wheelbarrow
full of pumpkins makes me feel like the richest
woman in the world. I love pumpkins and the shape
and the color and I just think, I could never have too many
We had to harvest these as those creepy squash beetles have
found the vines and the pumpkins. They are everywhere.
I get so sick from any kind of poison we are pretty much
at the mercy of the bugs. Not to mention the bees are out there.
This is the second wheelbarrow, the corn is on the bottom
and then the cantaloupe and then two more things
of peaches. I am so glad we spent the whole day doing honey,
because peeling peaches like this is nothing at all.
This is how they look right now on my front porch,
in my old wheelbarrow. I just love it when it is full
Life is good.
Have a lovely Sunday!
