Hello there, are you ready for a walk thru my garden. It's doing pretty good this year and I've enjoyed it more then any other year. We've already had some of the onions and I just picked the zucchini and squash, still need to cook them and can't wait for the corn to be ready. So put on your sunscreen and let's go walking!
I've had so much fun watching them grow and Rich is happy that I'm finally out there with him. All these years I tease him about his constant checking on the garden to see what's grown and now I do see that it all grows, like by the hour and definitely overnight. I call them my babies and sing to them about growing and how pretty they are. Kinda like talking to your plants, haha! Love these bright colors and seeing the joy in Rich's face when he's out there.
Oh and these leaves that grow on them, HOLY COW they are HUGE!! I have to dig my way thru them just to find the veggies hiding under them. I LOVE LOVE them and have been sketching them, need to practice more but enjoying them! I swear these grow by the hour and the biggest ones have the smallest veggies in them are just gorgeous!!
the tomatoes and peppers are doing great!! Rich loves peppers as do Sam and Summer, the tomatoes are for me and Sienna. She loves picking and eating them when she's over. So cool how excited she gets about them and knows that she helped plant them. Rich takes the peppers to work and passes out to friends. His co-workers wait for this each summer and fight over who gets his veggies. He is so proud of his hard work and sharing it with others just makes him even happier.
here is the corn, getting taller everyday. the sunflowers are doing great too
the clouds have been AMAZING AND GORGEOUS this week too
we watched the sunset from the lake, haven't done this in over 10years. MUST DO THIS MORE!!
Today is this sweet girls birthday. Hard to believe she was Sam's age here. Now she is 15 today and is still just as sweet and cute. We missed her this week while away at church camp. So glad she is back home and making us laugh again. Sam was going nuts without her here, no bedtime hugs and play time. Funny that purple was her favorite color then, she never goes near it now. Happy 15th birthday Summer, thank you for bringing such joy and smiles into our lives.
Today we are waking up to a night full of rain, thunder, lightening, I barely slept. The garden and yard have way to much water in them. Please say a prayer that our garden will survive, not sure what will go bad and Rich just planted the pumpkins. You know how much I LOOOOVE my pumpkins, hoping we don't loose them. Thanks so much for taking a walk thru my garden with me. Will do another one later in August, if all goes well.
This was the last week of SOC and I didn't get any cards done. I'm working on some sketches/paintings that I'm hoping to share later with these colors. Kristin, thanks so much for an awesome 6 weeks of color. I was inspired each week and know these colors will stay with me long after the summer is over. My garden pictures/walk will be what my SOC is for this week, not quite the sage and sepia colors that were picked but close enough. It was fun each week to see what the others created, so many amazing, beautiful art being made and shared. Kristin, thanks again for all you do to make this SOC happen. I will stay in touch with you thru the year and can't wait for the next SOC!! Happy weekend everyone!!
