We did it, we got the cantaloupes, the corn and
the pumpkins taken out today. Doesn't the dirt
look nice. It was about 4 hours of work but
I think worth it. Now I don't have the sound of
things rustling through the corn. I am so jumpy when
I am out there and when sometimes the sound
of the wind going through the corn stalks and I am
out there by myself, I get so jumpy I have to go back
in the yard. I am kind of a chicken. I know that there
are lots of critters that I can't recognize from the tracks,
so sometimes my mind does run away with me.
I took a picture of the green trash cans filled with corn
stalks. I keep thinking I should decorate with them.
but I have been sneezing and coughing and crying
now for about...4 hours since all of the ripping out of
the garden. I really don't want to get around it.
This is the last bit of pumpkins. I had small green ones
on the vine but as I was walking through the vines
I could see so many, creepy squash beetles. Oh
it was so terrible. One plant must have had a thousand
on it. I kicked it with my foot and it was just like kicking
over a ant hill. I have never seen so many of those icky
things. I have seen them around all of my life. We called them
stink bugs. I didn't know they are like ticks and they suck
the juices from the plants and fruit. They don't bother
the stone fruit, but they are on my sunflower stalks.
So we just took out the pumpkins. My poor husband was on the tractor
and they kept flying up at him. I could hardly stand it. I just had to walk
away because they were flying at me too. Next week, I hope it is a bit
cooler and we can take out the sunflowers and my tomatoes. I have
pretty vines just no tomatoes. We will leave the peppers until the first
I never could get my video to work so I am going to just do this post instead.
I don't know how to jump through the hoops to get it to play. I mean if you have
a Facebook account my son said you could view it that way. But I am not really sure
if it would work and I am tired of messing with it.
Sometimes things work and sometimes they don't but I learned how the
Edit Html thing works at the top of blogger so that was cool so it wasn't a
I hope you have a wonderful Sunday. I know it is a bit early but that way
with two posts it will make up for my video that didn't work. :)
