sadie, the silly mutt next door keeps comin' to the fence to get head rubbins from mommy.


she's kind of sweet, i guess... for a dog!

since lounging on the patio under the papasan is way more pleasurable than walking, i stay home when my parents visit the new community garden. from what i hear it's really looking nice...

before

after


they're growing more cantaloupe over there...

and butternut squash!

there's even a place to rest in front of a squash patch - pretty cozy if ya ask me!

which reminds me, nap time!  

thank u for reading!

  5. I heart your garden! Ahem, your mommie's garden that is. Biggles, a wonderful job you did on the update. The sunflowers are GORGEOUS! I want them. Sadly, we didn't grow any this year. Next year for sure! They're so happy. Love the neighbor puppy - Sadie is purty...well, for a dog. :) Nice work on the rain barrel too.

  7. "finally rigged up that rain barrel. then on sunday a rainstorm almost filled it completely!"---what great timing!

    love your gardens! and the fact that your color-coordinated/coded the text that you dropped in on it, i.e. red text for strawberries...love the way you think!

  8. Thanks for the great tour Biggles, your mom's garden is looking great. Do me a favor and tell her how neat I thought the green apple cucumber was and tell her I liked the video too. One of our future projects is to set up some sort of rain catchment system on the barn. Have a nice nap.:)

  14. Big, sloppy smooches to Biggles and Sadie!

    Your gardens are looking great! No need for rain barrels at my house, we get no rain. Well, not enough to fill a barrel.

  15. You take the best pictures of your kitty! Or maybe your kitty makes the best faces for your pictures?! Either way, I'm developing a crush on him. :)

    Your garden's no slouch either!

  18. All of your flowers are really gorgeous especially the arikira sunflower. It is so big and healthy with the sunlight. Your veggies are healthy and yummy. My garden is doing great also but got problems with pest and big pest!

  19. The sunflowers look great! But the whole garden really looks amazing. the plants are well-arranged and the place is spacious! You dog is really sweet. I also have my dog as my garden guard dog against squirrels and the other garden attackers. LOL. Oh. by the way, I watched the video and it is really useful! I will tell my husband about it.
