More Garden Pictures
Over in the middle of the garden I have a bed with Jack-be-little. You know the tiny pumpkins. I didn't plant any gourds this year. I meant to but I just never got around to it and gourds need a very long growing time, or they do here. To have a nice gourd crop I need to have them in the ground by April. I was still trying to decide if I was going to put a garden in in April.
I have to say, so far this is my favorite garden. I don't know why. Maybe it is that we spaced it far enough apart that we can get the tractor in to help with the weeds. I don't know if it is that I planted more flowers.
When I walk outside the gate in the mornings and I see all of that stuff growing and I walk around and look at things and then my chickens wander around with me just being chickens. To me it is the prettiest place in the world. I feel very thankful when I am out in the garden. In the evening when the sun is setting and we sit out there and the crickets start singing their summer songs I know why God planted a garden and put man in the midst of it.
Summer is just the best.
Have a lovely weekend,
