Garden update!

Larry got this little garden sign for me yesterday for ten cents at a church thrift store that's fast becoming one of our favorite places to hang out.  It's run by an Anglican church in Fort Valley and I just love its name, Christ The Redeemer. 

Monty is still hard at work guarding the tomatoes and we have not seen hide nor hair of that possum since I put him out there.  Good job, Monty!!

These slow-pokin', gonna-show-up-when-all-the-work-is-done-like-a-dang-blister things are marigolds that I planted to keep the squash bugs away. They just started blooming a couple of weeks ago.  Yeah, good job, marigolds. 

I planted pumpkins and mammoth sunflowers yesterday along the fence.  I'm so excited to see how the pumpkins do!!  I still have scallions, spinach and lettuce to plant for fall and I'll be DONE with planting this year!!

Nothing better than a cute little orange car hanging overhead to encourage good pumpkin growth!  That's my story anyway.

My sunflowers make me happy.
