I’ve recently had some troubles posting to this blog. The problems seem to be solved, so here goes.
My most recent post (a week ago) featured a photo of Sylvia in the garden. She was harvesting zucchini. A couple of days later, I harvested six zucchinis and two jalapeños. Two days after that, Sylvia brought these in.
We’ve been wanting some poppers, so a trip to the store for bacon was next. We enjoyed immensely our first jalapeño poppers of the year.
A couple of days passed and Sylvia went out to the garden to “check on things.” She was gone a long time. When she did come back in, she brought these with her.
She also had a plastic shopping bag half full of green beans, some broccoli, an onion, some beets, and a cabbage as big as your head. That first coleslaw of the season was super good.
We had to prune the butternut squash vines before they took over the entire garden. Could it be the 15 loads of manure that we put on the garden last fall?
As I look out the window I see day lilies in blossom. Beside them, the large hosta is also in blossom and an American gold finch visits to check out the blooms. An earlier visitor was a humming bird–always fun to watch.
