This was how the garden looked this weekend before we took it out. It always makes me so mad at myself that the heat comes and then my garden turns into this. Weeds every where. That is when I always wish I was like Mr. Mcgregor.
This is how it looks today.
We left the herb garden in because some of these plants need two years or more to grow. The funny thing about some of the herbs we planted they look like giant weeds themselves.
My two youngest sons have spent the summer making a mud ball. My youngest son has researched on Guinness records and there is no category for a mud ball. So they are trying to make the largest mud ball in the world.
I made Sasha sit next to it so you could see how big it is now. It has gotten so big they can hardly move it now. They were asking me what was going to happen when it started raining. They were telling me maybe they could move it up on the porch or maybe buy a tarp to cover it. They go out every day or so and add more mud. It is a very impressive mud ball.
It has taken all summer to grow this egg plant. I planted the seeds pretty late. I didn't think there was much difference from a store bought egg plant and a home grown one. I bought one at the store and after being used to the ones we grow it was such a sad disappointment. The ones I go out and pick and then bring into the house and cut them up for dinner there is no smell nor are the seeds hard and the insides are nice and white. The one I bought at the store was already brown on the inside when I cut it. I decided I would just keep growing my own.
This is just a odds and ends post. Have a great Thursday!
