It has been a very busy few days around here. We have attended two award ceremonies this week. One child got a Good Citizenship and Principle’s Award, while the other got more awards than we can remember. Summer has officially started for the youngest, there have already been a comment made about boredom, of course that was when it was time to clean up said child’s room. It is a mess, I tell you, a utter mess.
During this past week, I have decided without a doubt that those mystery plants from the compost are indeed pumpkins. Most have flowered and now have fruit. We were hoping for squash or maybe a cantaloupe or two, but I guess we were meant to have a bountiful supply of pumpkins. I think I know what the kids will be doing this fall.
Speaking of squash, they have finally bloomed and have fruit. I can’t wait until I get to try a new squash recipe, I usually just grill them. The same recipes can become a bit monotonous don’t you think?
Some of the sunflowers have reached unthinkable heights. I have learned that sunflowers aren’t suited for containers. I will spare you a photo of those, it’s sad, but have a look-see at what the others are up to. I’ve read that sunflowers make nice treats for the chickens. And us too.
