I happened to look out the window yesterday morning while reading email and blogs and drinking morning tea – and what did I see – the critters that have been eating the tops of my green beans in the garden! Very pretty creatures aren’t they – I had to take a photo first before I went outside in my pajamas to scare them away! A mama deer and twins – they are cute. I guess I might have to come up with something to keep them out of the garden but really it is a small garden and I’m just not going to worry that much about it – it isn’t like this is a great producing garden. I might see about finding some bells and hook some to wire and encircle the garden – maybe that will startle them away? Or I might just wait to figure it out next year and do something when I first start to plant!
The big logs in the background are hollowed out with a chain saw filled with dirt and I am growing cucumbers and acorn squash in them – Mike made them about 2 years ago – they will eventually rot and turn to soil and then I can plant directly on top of them. I have four of them.
This wheel on Wagon’s West is almost done. I am linking to Cooking Up Quilts, MCM#24 today and Em’s Scrapbag.
Worked some on these flowers – they need some more embroidery on them, I was mostly just working on the edges first and will add other stitches still.
The quilt was rolled down a little more. That is the half way point at the top – smaller quilt than normal of course.
The sweet potatoes are growing quickly, I just put them in the ground two weeks ago.
And why are my tomato plants looking so poorly – lots of tomatoes on them from the middle down but now a lot of the leaves are dying and the blossoms on the top of the plants are falling off. I will look and see if there are more tomato plants at the store still – we are going to have a bit of a heat wave this week – near 100 already – so early in summer for that – if I find new plants I will keep them on the porch until the heat passes or maybe just put some in pots and keep them where I can shelter them from the hottest sun for awhile.
The mints are doing much better since I moved them to the deck – they are sheltered from the hot afternoon sun – I was having to water them every other day and now maybe once a week and they are thriving. I was thinking maybe put a couple tomato plants up there too and see how they do.
