After picking lots of yellow squash and zucchini, we moved to the cucumbers. We discovered a few with some little critter chomps! We decided we shouldn’t donate them BUT we could cut off the bad parts and eat them ourselves. One little guy said, “These taste so good that I don’t even need ranch dressing!” Nothing better than a fresh cucumber taken off the vine!
Finally, after picking 52 pounds of produce we had our watermelon treat. I also brought out
We closed our eyes, put the
grape in our mouths and guessed the flavor. Cotton Candy- flavored green grapes! It was time to bring Scarecrow Bob out of the garden shed, too. His face had faded so we used permanent marker to give him a new look...not too scary though.
After the kids left on the bus, Victoria and I plumped Bob up with some extra straw, fixed up his clothing and found him a home against the new squash tunnel. Zip-tying is a skill we discovered Victoria has, but Kathy does not! Scarecrow Bob would be on the ground if Kathy were left to the task! We all have our gifts, and I guess I should stick to gardening!
Victoria’s final words on this very warm day....
“Kathy, I can honestly say you wore me out today. I need a nap!”
