I walked out with my camera and what do I find? This with bites out of it. I did catch the culprits. I was scolded as Mr. Parrot flew around and around me, because I had disturbed his early morning breakfast.
I did see the baby blue jay.
We planted and planted and we have some tomatoes on the porch that we wanted to wait one more week before we put them out so next weekend they will make it out there. We planted tomatoes, peppers, okra,
summer squash and zucchini, corn, green beans cucumbers. Lots and lots of pumpkins. Gourds and cantaloupe. Three egg plants and some sunflowers. I still need to put in a long row of sunflowers. I was so tired of being on my hands and knees, I just couldn't face it. Not to mention the ground got very hot and it was burning my knees. The okra should love it.
I think we have 55 tomato plants. Give or take, I can remember how many peppers but a lot.
We are supposed to have a heat wave this week and I am sure the seeds will love it. Weekend before last, we planted zinnia and hollyhocks seeds in one of my flowerbeds and it was warm that weekend and by Tuesday they were all up.
were so cute eating the ripe berries that I just had to get a shot of them as I was walking around.
I just love to be out there in the early morning, with my hens following me around just chattering among themselves.
Have a lovely Monday,
