Hi everybody! It's me, Autumn!
We're on our way out to dad's vege garden! Dad started all of his flowers from seed and all of his tomato plants from seed!
The flowers that are just staring to bloom are giant zinnias. He also has marigolds planted and those bigger plants in the center are sunflowers! We've had a LOT of rain lately and very little sun so our garden is a little behind where it should be for this time of year!
This tomato is called Fourth of July and in years past, we'd be picking it and eating it but not this year! It's a smaller-type tomato but it has a tremendous yield! Once these tomatoes start to ripen, we'll keep picking them until September! Mom loves to toss these tomatoes across the brook to Maggie and Mitch who are waiting for are patiently waiting their treat! They both love tomatoes!
All of the rain hasn't hurt the zucchini squash! It looks like we'll be picking it very soon! yummm
Do you see that little guy in there? That's a baby acorn squash! This is the first time that we've ever grown acorn squash! We sure hope it does well for us!
Look how big these leaves are! I could get lost in the garden and mom would never know what happened to me!
We're heading back across the brook now!
Hello grampa Grey Lag! Nice day we're having, isn't it?!
This is Mitch's apple tree! We don't prune it and we don't spray it! The apples are pretty much for the ducks, geese and Dauby, our swan and of course for MitchyBoy! They're not as pretty as what you see in the grocery store because we don't spray but nobody complains about it - they just scarf them up!
See you all next Wednesday!
