Pumpkins seem to love to grow up trellis or wire netting. This year Daniel made me a pumpkin frame from tree branch trimmings and some scraps of fencing wire. The plants needed a bit of encouragement to start their climb up and over. Now there are some pumpkins forming. I wished I weeded a bit better when the plants were little as many plants didn’t survive the resulting shade nor find their way onto the frame.
What a sweet present Lily was nine years ago. She wanted a dress like Belle’s for her birthday. Nan and Susie found some satin at Creative Junk for $2 and Nan made it into a costume. She had a Belle birthday cake that Susie made, they watched the movie of Beauty and the Beast and she built up her Belle’s castle lego set gift.
Lunches for the working boys made by Susanna this afternoon while I was asleep. (Baby is sick and up in night at moment) She will put them in the freezer so they can take what they need each day. What a gal!
These are my seed planters for 2016. They planted zucchini, cabbage, onion, leek and cucumber seeds in trays and other containers ready for a new growing season. Thanks people! It feels great to have these things planted and in the greenhouse.
