Ok, so...I wasn't going to do a garden update today but when I walked out there this morning and saw it, I changed my mind. I'm just so amazed at how quickly and easily this stuff is growing!
|This is our pumpkin sprout on day 5.|
|This is zuchini, day 5. I'll have to thin this one out soon to just one plant. That's SO hard for me to pull out a plant and let it die, but I know that if I don't do it soon, none of them will survive.|
|This is squash, day 5.|
|broccoli day 5|
|And this is my absolute favorite thing from today. This is the bush bean, day 5.|
|The bean again. You can almost see where the actual bean used to be.|
|And here, if you look closely, you CAN see the actual dried bean (the seed). How awesome is that?|
|See? That looked like a dry black bean when I put it in the ground!|
And the humidity was a scant 60%.
|Halfway through cutting the front yard, I looked up and saw this. She ripped down half of her "stained glass window" that Daddy made and somehow was sitting on the window sill. She stayed there until I finished.|
|And this is the beginning of my compost pile. I bagged all the grass while I was mowing so I could easily get it started. The laundry basket is there to show you how much grass there is.|
Y'all....it was so hot out there. My feet were SOAKED when I was done. And my boots aren't even all that tight...or heavy. Also, I did wear pants to cut the grass...our neighbors wouldn't like naked yard work.
I don't know how only this part of my shirt got a sweat stain cause I was dripping everywhere! Probably mostly from humidity, but my goodness.
It took me an hour and a half to cut the front and back, and I used that as my excuse to lounge on the couch in the AC the rest of the day. Then I treated the girls and myself to some BBQ and ice cream. Poor daddy missed out.
