The next day, we went to Yasmine's fifth birthday. I can't believe she's five already! The weather was overcast so it was quite humid! The sun shone too, so lots of sunburns that day! The reason for the sunburns is because we pushed the kids in swings a lot! But we endured since it will be August before we get to spend time with Yasmine and Layla! I miss them already as they are in Morocco! I'm sure they are having a great time with their family there!
The garden is coming in a handful of cucumbers, green beans, and raspberries at a time! Before I know it, I'll have enough cucumbers to pickle! That is if I quit eating them. I love them! The squash isn't quite big enough to harvest but when it is, there should be quite a lot! I hope I haven't found out too late about DE being good to deter squash borers! The vine looks kind of yellow at the ground. I bought some today and when I finish writing, I'm putting the Diatomaceous earth on the base of the vine. Every year I loose squash plants no matter where I plant them! Lets hope this works!
The weather has been quite hot and humid with a thunderstorm almost daily! The winds gusted up enough to cause a walnut tree to fall on the goat girl's fence. I didn't even know it had happened as there wasn't any sound. They must not have known it either cause they didn't escape. Kind of scary to have damaging winds and not even hear them! Everything else is o.k.
I'm loving this time of year with everything growing and producing! I hope ya'lls gardens are growing nicely! Have a nice day! Blessings from Bama!
