Baby Pumpkins & Raised Beds my love:)
Helllooooo my Darlin Dears, Fellow lovers of life, Meadow creatures that nest in my mess of hair & the Gnomes who found it practical to use my goat as transportation,
Miss Lamb your peach picking & Dill pickle making Farmer here:)
Ooooohhh my goodness gracious:)
My pumpkins are simply doing wonderful!!!
After a whole inch of rain and a few days of the temp staying below 105, even the baby pumpkins are trying to make it:)
....& the givers of honey are really taking a liking to all of those lovely blossoms :)
My second pumpkin bed is looking glorious:)
I am raising 5 different breeds of pumpkins, including one all white pumpkin :)
I have great help in the garden...my animal help for the day was mostly Buster..
He sits patiently at my side while I pick weeds and examine vines for pumpkins that are on the verge of turning into carriages :)
But cotton did test my in-progress raised beds for walk-ability...
...I look forward to this new bed being done....just a few more layers of hay and manure to go:) Then I shall plant heirloom carrots and some fall gourds :)
But then, cotton got to tired and went to rest on the porch:)
...I also pose you a question my Darlin Dears...
Isn't it funny how water becomes heavy when you put a bucket around it:)
....& just to let you know, my newest set of images is now for sale online:)
"Naming Our Children After Trees Part I"

I hope you all have a lovely lovely week, and send your kind growing thoughts to my pumpkins If you please:)
