There was a bunny at the school going 100 miles an hour around me on the riding lawn mower. Was in the car getting ready to leave a skunk wandered thru the parking lot.

Kinda over planted my 4'x4' 11 seeds came up, so far healthy, hope they stay that way after the past 2 yrs of mildew and bugs.

Been chasing  bunnies off. Seen relaxing near  supposed to be veggie garden.I need to get veggies in for Fall/Winter.

Oh scared bunny much it peed and hopped away in fright. Just hope the bunnies don't go after my blueberries. Rhubarb in hiding near dwarf apple tree and hollyhocks. Need a place to make a snare and get the bunnies for dinner. 

Also been laid up with real bad deep vein thrombosis and on blood thinner  till August. So that has kept me from gardening. Darn Morning Glory vines taking over gardens, took mower and edged around was fenced garden and what I could cut  within garden. Prefer not use herbicide around veggie gardens.

Haven't taken many photos of the vegetable garden yet. Why am I waiting, it's looking very good despite the cloudy conditions since mid-June. The winter squash is amazing as it climbs over the cardboard boxes & now has climbed the 4 ft fence too reaching for the sky. Will it go over the other side? Everything I planted between the squash & the raspberries got disappeared completely by the bunnies. I haven't had a bunny around for 15 yrs & now I must have hordes of them! I planted lettuce everywhere but it's their favorite it seems so milk crates & bird cages pop up here & there. Next year it will be a full fence. I grow sunflowers for the birds & they are over my head already. Picking broccoli & hunting for those hidden cucumbers. That new fence will come in handy for me to pick them. The red cabbage is outstanding, time to pick it after I take a portrait of course! Here's the before shot of the cucumbers from May.

Thunderstorm has passed for now. But got to wait till new gardens dry out. I hope my pre-starts will do well once I put then in garden. No wild rabbit since I cleared weeds from new garden plots.

Friend gave me some runner beans but bad thing was they were in plastic bottle so lost all. Purslane a bit slow inside. Thinking of getting some packets of Marigold of different types and colours to add some colour around veggies and in gardens along fence line. Planning trip along your East coast when get some sales online. Virginia, New York, Mass. Partially to look to where my father's side of family started out before ended up in Canada. Renewed my KOA membership and CAA/AMA/AAA membership the other day also, getting last part of passport renewal done. Probably drive there and find a sitter for house and my 2 parrots.

I did pull up a box full of small carrots that were planted last fall and over wintered in the mini greenhouses. Purple ones to come soon. Guess the birds got all my strawberries as the bird netting wasn't all the way around the boxes. GRRRRRR! Planting bush beans now.

Got thunder coming and had lots of rain. So today relax. Got my 2 gardens almost ready to get veggies in and I hope they give me veggies for over Winter. Glad to hear from you both. Keep in touch both of you. Love hearing from you both. Let you know what I am planting in veggies later.

William soooo glad you are alive and well, wondering the other day. There is always a plant that akes over this year it is common thyme. I blinked and wow! Some got 5' round and babies everywhere. Since it is the right moon cycle I am moving herbs away from next to the house out into yard and digging harvesting and throwing away thyme. Moved some smaller ones and chives by the driveway. Sill growing in boxes and large pots due to critters. Trying to build the right covers for the beds first ones failed. No helpers right now. Started bunches of tomato plants for everyone else and some organic ones for me to grow toms o sell or give away since I can't eat them. Lots of kosher weed to dig up as always.

I am still living and trying to garden through the rain and tornadoes the grass getting tall yard. Got some corn planted in my beds for the first time and its all up. Got tomatoes and peppers, and 2 types of cuks up. Squash in the greenhouse will be ready in 2 weeks or more maybe the weeds will be pulled by then.
