I found these in the garden last night. I had a smile on my face all evening. 🙂
Our garden has not done well this year but these squashes, especially the volunteer winter squashes, have been a treat.

Look what I found in the garden this afternoon!
This is the first thing I’ve pulled from the garden this year. We planted the summer crops late because of the rain we had for a month or more. And now it’s so hot, the plants are struggling to hold on.
But this little pea pod gives me hope! I found two more pea pods starting to grow and a couple more blooms on the vine.
So, there’s still hope for the spring crops and I’m cheering on the summer crops. 🙂
Chris and I planted two types of tomatoes (12 plants in all), green pepper, cayenne pepper, cabbage, cantaloupe, basil and oregano in our garden this year.
But, unfortunately, in one night deer ate every single on of the tomato plants, little tomatoes and green peppers. This was in despite of the fishing line strung with plastic bags that was supposed to scare the hoofed nuisances away from our 8′ by 8′ garden.
Man, I was looking forward to tomato sandwiches, homemade salsa and pasta sauce!
Luckily, we still have three green pepper plants we placed in pots inside. So we should still get some peppers.
Although we’ve had some setbacks with the veggie garden, most of our other plants are doing fine, including this gladiola (left) and these purple cone flowers (right), shown here growing among Maximilian sunflowers.
