Cleaning the Garden
I just couldn't take out the sunflowers today. They looked so pretty
just blowing in the breeze. The sky was so blue and they
just looked so happy out there.
We took out the onions and I got these two baskets of brown
onions. I braided them and hung them out on the fence that
goes around the swimming pool to dry. I did fix
onion rings tonight for dinner. They were wonderful.
This is the musk melon. We only got one cantaloupe this year
from the cantaloupe but the musk melon did pretty good. It is now
in the back refrigerator.
This is part of the stuff we took out, well not me,
Ron and the tractor. I just pulled the hoses out and
hula hoed my tomatoes, and peppers and around the
eggplant. I am going to keep those in until after the first frost.
This is looking at it from another direction. We took down
the arch with the morning glories. They had died in the last
week and I was tired of looking at the sad things.
This will be filled with new little trees to grow big so my husband
can start growing them for Bonsai.
I went around to all of the pumpkins to turn them and
set them on the bottoms so they bottoms would be flat.
These are the ones that just fell off.
I thought they looked so pretty today. They just
look like fall. I did want to make some pumpkin muffins
or pumpkin pie. Even pumpkin ice cream.
This is what we did today. It was nice to be able to work
like this and get so much done. It does so much for my mind
to see the weeds gone.
I would though like to put in some sweet peas this year.
Every year I tell myself I have to remember to plant my sweet
peas and every year I forget. I don't want to forget.
Thanks for stopping by today,
