Alright so I've missed a couple of weeks, but we've been busy in one way or another, besides maybe it makes for a more exciting debut if there is a little time between updates.
Things are growing. We've picked and eaten plenty of strawberries, and even happily prepared a couple of peppers, and one tomato. Some areas are even big enough that I've happily given up on weeding.
I love sunflowers,
But my favorite addition to my garden this week is the skinny little guy that came home with me from Colorado.
He'll make a great substitute scarecrow in the corn. He was a great find on a thrift store outing at only $3. We both were skeptically judged by his purchase, where I saw art, others saw a glorified branch. I guess Boulder was a little too hip and trendy for us both. But we do look amazing in the garden.... yes, it's a much better fit.... and without the expensive price tag on our organic fruit and vegetables.
And my project in all it's phases (for now) is complete. I call my little mining/western town Motherlode, and with the amount of fun it brings, it truly is.
