Summer has arrived and I think we have felt the last of that nice cool weather for many months. Our garden is doing better than expected seeing how little we added to the soil. We’ve harvested all the radishes and now are pulling beans everyday and since the squash just grew on their own, without us planting them, I’m still trying to decide if they are good to eat.
This little plant is called a stinging nettle and when you touch it it stings and itches. Carlie and Donny have stepped on them several times this summer and now make a game of running around the yard pointing out all the nettles they can find to try to learn to avoid them.
Last weekend Carlie wasn’t feeling well. She was up for two nights and spent most of one day sleeping. Thankfully it wasn’t very long lasting.
I guess we were all over tired from being up all night.
Nothing says summer like fresh corn on the cob. It was nice to have Carlie and Donny take care of all the husking for me.
This is the mystery squash. What do you think? Does it look familiar to you?
