Gifts from the Garden

BHU:  Mai mom is so weird.  She likes to grow yellow tomatoes.  She grows yellow "green beans."  And she put flags up in the garden to keep the critters away.  It looks like a party, doesn't it?

PATTY:  You forgot to mention the okra.

BHU:  That's because it is so weird.  What a weird, weird vegetable!

Hope your garden grows well this summer!  xxoo

Say Hey!

 BHU:  Okay, it's been a long, long time since mai mom has had time to let efurryone know we are still alive and well at the Skypants B&B!  We've been having great weather, which means mai job as house security offisser is more demanding, too.  Here I am on the job watching fer introoders.   Our garden is doing better than last year, but you can see these nasty fellas have done a job on mai mom's dill plant.  Holy cow, where did they all COME from?

 PATTY:  Hope you can see these doods!  There's nothing left but a couple of dill sticks.  Once the dill was gone, they disappeared.  I was hoping they would turn into butterflies.   And here's another one of our regular "visitors" to the garden.  This one was sitting on the porch for quite a while last evening.  Not at all afraid of me.  I suppose I'm happy about that in a way.

I spent a good deal of time this month sewing buntings to put up in the garden because something has been eating the tops off the tomatoes and sweet potatoes -- even the regular potato plants, which I thought were poisonous!  Sabryin calls the garden "The Squirrel Carnival" now and I admit it is very colorful.

Hope you are all doing well and having a happy summer.  It will be over soon, so enjoy the days in the sun!  xxoo
