We have these strange foxes that have moved in so maybe its them. They don't have fuzzy tales like a fox, more like a dog/fox hybrid. We were working in the garden and it was noon and I had my chicken out with us and it wanted a chickens so bad it was willing to take the chance with us there. Even Sasha spotted it. I haven't lost any chickens so that's good.
Here are a few of the garden pictures I took.
The plums are getting ripe. We just haven't had many warm days yet. I wanted them to be ripe with Ben and his family were here and I would check to see if any were ripe but they never were.
I planted pumpkins just one row and in the hole I also planted sunflowers. I am hoping the pumpkins will climb the sunflowers. I tried it one year and it worked pretty well. The pumpkins were good because they weren't on the ground and the squash borers didn't go up on the vines off the ground. That is why I am doing vertical gardening this year. I have dug and read and watched videos of the different things people have tried to keep their vines safe. Only in one place did I see where someone said, that "an old timer mentioned he used sulfur around the base of the plant." We found food grade sulfur on Amazon and I hope it will do the trick. I am desperate to not have the bugs win.
Welcome June! I am so glad that you are here and the weather will hopefully settle down.
Thank you so much for stopping by today,
|It was June, and the world smelled of roses. The sunshine was like powdered gold over the grassy hillside.|
