Now I just need to cut the bias binding and get it quilted for fall decorating! I think one of my Magic Lantern pumpkins will look great on it - providing they mature in time! I sprayed too much liquid fertilizer on them the other day and managed to kill the smaller ones, but there are four that are quite large and I think will make it!
Speaking of the garden, check out my sunflowers! They are finally opening - albeit to the alley - I guess that's the way they want to follow the sun from the east to the west. Mr. Squash said he thinks they're snubbing us - lol!!
I harvested all but a few smaller carrots the other day! Look at the bounty combined with that days green bean harvest! Beans are harvested almost daily right now! I plan to make carrot cake, lots of pot roast (our favorite) and use the rest for just plain munching!
This was my first tomato harvest about a week ago. Since then I've gotten two more large tomatoes and quite a few more cherry tomatoes. Everyone in town has remarked that it hasn't been the best year for tomatoes. But most of my bushes are loaded - I think we just need to be patient for them to ripen!
I also cleaned out the lettuce bed - we couldn't eat or give it away fast enough before a lot of it bolted. I re-planted four more rows for a later summer harvest. While I was pulling the bolted plants, this cute little while Petunia emerged hidden in the lettuce leaves! What a brave little soul! I left her in hopes that she will produce babies and keep the Marigolds company while the new lettuce sprouts!
