Summer lull

Four sunflowers

There's nothing like big, yellow sunflower heads to prove that it's truly summer. Corn is tassling, the first slicer tomato will soon be ripening, and okra flowers are budding. We're eating green beans, summer squash, tommy-toe tomatoes, Swiss chard, and the last of the lettuce while waiting on the harvest deluge to hit.

Kayla --- His loss is my gain! Was it on the trail we'd talked about?

Very good weekend here now that the goats are back in therapy-animal mode. I hope you had a restful, wonderful time too!

sorry anna i am getting forgetful and dont remember where we talked about. It was where me and you have been. There was just one and may have been past its prime...not real sure so it might not be worth it. Andy said he hadnt seen any near his dads this year. Of course he might have just said that to keep me from feeding it to him lol.
