I hope that EVERYONE is enjoying some relaxation and time off with the current Labor Day holiday!
The tomato worms have given up their battle in the tomato patch.
But a new enemy has risen.
These bugs love my tomatoes. Red, green or in between.
And they have babies who love my tomatoes.
The sunflowers have finished blooming and have turned brown.
Usually, I cut off the heads, hang them up to dry and save them for the birds in winter.
This year, the birds have already begun to feast.
Maybe my newly planted sunflowers will have a chance to mature before the frosts come and they can be saved for the winter birds.
The garden has new children of the dirt. Who are growing nicely so far.
Well……with the exception of the squash. This just hasn’t been a good year for squash on this farm.
Here’s my pumpkin harvest….
They’re not big, but that’s fine. I use them for pies and such.
I only wish I could grow atleast one BIG one for Boo to carve for Halloween. Maybe next year.
This past week I canned tomatoes and pumpkin.
I still have a few pumpkins left to can, or maybe I’ll just make a pie, cookies or bread. Or all three. Who knows what I’ll have time for.
That’s it for this week’s garden report.
What’s happening in your garden?
