Noticing that the mice and other critters were starting to snack on the jack-be-little pumpkin/gourds in the garden, I made an executive decision to harvest them.
Leaving the eight or so ones that were half-eaten, I got busy collecting the rest of the gourds.
It's like a treasure hunt finding them in the tall grass and under leaves.
Our boy convinced me I should grow blue Morning Glories along our pool fence.
He told me he loved them at our last home, where they covered a chain link fence.
I had tried growing these in the same spot a couple years ago with no success.
This year the hot summer and my extra effort to make them grow is paying off.
I'll plant them again, in more places next summer.
Still in the garden:
lots of tomatoes
again, a lot of it.
Keeping busy in the garden,
