Don't Turn Your Back on the Zucchini!

Another week has gone by; it's Sunday night already and this will be a brief blog.  It sure is good to have the guys home from camp!  They say they had a good time with the scouts, but are glad to be home too.

What fool plants four zucchini plants?  That would be me.  Good thing the chickens like them!  Beans are coming along now, I probably will be canning this week.  The tomatoes are still pretty slow, just a few here and there.  We are also getting some nice cukes, and I am enjoying lettuce, swiss chard, and kale in my salad.

Rollie combined our small field of rye this week, so today we baled up the straw.  The baler was a problem again, but with some adjustments it was running a bit better by the time we were done.  Didn't get any pictures of the combining or the straw baling, but there is still the oats and wheat to do.

The sunflower field is about half in bloom now.  I wish you could see them in person!  They are such happy flowers!

Because I like to include a critter picture in my posts and didn't take any new ones this weekend, I am throwing in this one of our housecat Callie.  I don't think she's been on the blog before.  She's often to be found at the foot of our bed.

And that is it for tonight.  Be well friends.


  1. Oh my gosh, I would love to have that much zucchini! There is so much you can do with it.

    1. I wish I could send you some! Do you make zucchini relish? I was just visiting your blog and all the relishes you make. Relish is not something we eat at my house at all. Maybe we should start. I need to challenge myself to find new ways to prepare zucchini; maybe someday I will find something that Kevin will eat.

  2. Callie can also be found on my former bed, you won't believe how much hair I had to clean off of it
