This afternoon I was canning some more sauce
when Tim came excitedly into the kitchen.
He exclaimed that he fixed his fishing pole for
our Shiloh trip.
Every fall we go with my parents for a week
to Hatch Lake in NY.
It's one of our favorite vacations
Together we decided we should build a wormpit
to build up the supply of worms
to bring fishing with us.
I cleaned up the kitchen and headed out to help
It's a gorgeous day: sunny with a gentle breeze.
This is just perfect weather!
We got our bucket to house our worms and
started digging up some dirt.
I went to my garden and cleared out a spot.
It was the old bean patch.
I turned over the dirt and grabbed any worms I spotted.
Right next to the rows of beans, I planted some gourds.
This was a new gourd variety to me.
I love planting gourds. They're easy and so
fun to watch grow.
This summer totally passed me by and I didn't look at the
gourd plants since they were baby plants.
I strolled over to the plants and was totally
amazed by what I saw!
These are the other gourds I have growing for my
sister. I enjoyed
grow right along
the tomatoes plants.She does some
and ornament making with them.
But these I found today just totally wowed me!!!
Look how big this one is! Mind you, I wasn't
"blessed" with tiny feet. I have size 10 feet.
These gourds are huge! Maybe Tonya will have to make
bowls or basket type things out of these.
She's very creative so it'll be fun to see what she
does with them.
It'll also be fun to see how many are out there.
The woodpile is coming along nicely.
Now I need to go get some carrots to go with supper.
How is your garden coming?
