Saturday August 30
The garden was full of activity. I came by a little late about 11:00 or so. Helen was there with her daughter and she and Miranda quickly went off to play. I tried to get them to help with the harvest but a frog and a butterfly distracted them and off they went to find a way to make a fairy house. Even the frightening bumble bees didn't keep them from the sunflower house. It is so over grown now that only kids are comfortable climbing through the foliage to get to the center of the house. They seem to have a lot of fun in there. Giggles and excitement admit from it's core. I'm sure its a great place of inspiration for fairy houses.
The white pumpkin continues to grow. Jack has informed me that it is in fact a squash. I'm still not sure. It certainly looks like a pumpkin. What do you think?
We have the old compost pile moved and the ground is cleared to make way for the new greenhouse which is scheduled to arrive mid September. Jack, John, Dean and Angela did an amazing amount of dirt hauling and sifting to accomplish this bare bit of ground. Thanks for keeping at it Jack and John.
Look our friends the frogs are making a come back. I haven't seen them most for most of the hottest part of the summer. Now that we have had a few rains they're back.
