Anyway all is well out yonder. I will say, some feller named, Jack stopped by and left me some 'magical' seeds.
|Not beans but, birdhouse gourds. It's been growing about 6" a day.|
..more on the the birdhouse gourds. I had seeds in the ground next to an old dead, almost gone stump. Had a different tree removed and this stump. The guy also mixed dirt and chips all around. I figured the gourds were gone for this year. Lo and behold. MAGIC. And they came up in a perfect spot.
|These are called 'Tigger Melons'. Softball size. Sweet. First time grown for me.|
|Popcorn! It's tasseling and there's a few ears. No children among 'em, yet.|
|For the past several years I've had problems with vine borer bugs. This year I covered these for their first 2 months. By George, I think we've licked 'em.|
|Store bought cantaloupe. (Just to see if they'll grow.) Looks like it.|
|Hummingbird and butterfly plants. Probably too late for blooms but, next year, watch out. Additional cuke and squash, also.|
|Not that I need this, at the moment, but it's a great memento of my service, and I'll be able to beat the hell out of somebody when I get senile. :)|
