I have always planted corn in my garden. Every year I get to cook about 6 pieces and the squirrels destroy the rest of it, then I am stuck with disposing of the stalks and by that time it is 95 degrees. This year I have 5 (five) stalks of corn just so I can say I have corn in my garden. The battle is on but I have never yet won against the squirrels.
At the base of the corn, I planted some Jacob's cattle beans that Barb picked up for me at a craft show. They are new to me.
I think stakes from Lowes are kinda boring so I use whatever comes along. I have fences made from sticks too. These are McCauslen green beans.
ONE giant beet is in my garden. I love to plant Bull's Blood beets but last year they went begging and were left over in the spring for me to dispose of. I can only eat so many of them. I won't eat this one, it is for decoration.
A pumpkin...I don't have a clue as to what kind. It is growing straight up through the tomato cage. Very strange.
Yes, I know, it's too early for Halloween, but PJ found some great fabrics for me to use. Some of them are actually made in USA! This gal is made from a pattern by Rustic Raggedys. I went online to see if she is still making patterns, but I didn't find her anywhere. I changed it some, because I couldn't get the apron right. The apron has a pumpkin head bib but I gave up on it. If you have news of Rustic Raggedys, please drop me a line.
If you needed it, I hope you got a good rain like we did. It makes the garden grow.
Happy Friday to my friends!
