Sorry it has been so long since I have posted anything. My computer has been out of service for a while. I am back now and ready to tell you about my pumpkins.
I had a good tun out of pumpkins and gourds this year. Not as many as last year, but that was intentional. Last year was a bit overkill. This year I planted a variety of gourds and pumpkins. I am already ready for spring so I can start over again. The large one was 80 pounds. I was hoping for over 85 because my biggest last year was that big.
This was a sewing project that I was working on. I am NOT a sewer, I am still learning. I ripped it apart many times. I would like to thank everyone that was on-call, ready for me to call with my questions. I had a lot of people who are ready every time I take on a sewing project. Though it looks like an easy project, it was a little challenging for me. I am so happy to have it done though. Addi Kay will have a pretty dress for next spring!!!
This was the pumpkin that I thought was gong to break my 85 lb. record. As you can see it is already changing colors and NOT 85 lbs. if I had to take a guess. Now I am focusing on others that are large. They are still growing and have a little longer to do so. Maybe they will break a record?
These are some carrots that I had pulled for my neighbors. I had no luck with carrots last year, so I am pretty excited to be doing good in the carrot department this year.
This is my Addi Kay with some of our peppers. I have had some issues with blossom end rot on the peppers and tomatoes, but these ones were fine.
I have entered my baked goods in the fair and am awaiting the judging outcome. My son, Cameron also entered a couple of things this year as well.
Nothing much is going on in the garden, just sucking up tons of water because of the heat. They love the heat though. I am getting pumpkins galore, gourds too. Lots of green tomatoes, none red yet. The corn is huge and is producing well so far. Not ready to pick though.
The chickens have started laying. Little baby eggs. There are really cute. My little girls are becoming hens.
Crystal, Omerosa, and Trixy
The clothes don’t take long to dry on the clothesline because it is so hot. I do love the clothesline.
My compost would be complete if I would leave it alone and quit adding to it. I have a couple of pumpkins I allowed to stay growing in it. I have finally been able to construct a second story home for the worms. If I could only get them to move out of the first story just a bit quicker, that would be great. They are movin’ on up SLOWLY. Mostly the baby worms for now.
