The Garden As Of Today

It's looking greener and fuller. Yeah! The tomatoes and squash are getting big. The second row is my pumpkins. I'm so excited!
Our first of so many zucchini. I only planted two green zucchini plants, but I have a total of 6 summer squash plants.
Our first pumpkin is forming.
And look a little bee is pollinating the pumpkin. Don't want to disturb the little guy.

Our front Yard

My mint plants. Peppermint, chocolate mint, pineapple mint, and apple mint. I love mint. A rosh bush and my chicken garden ornament. I made Rog get that for me when we didn't have chickens. LOL!
My moms rose bush and the hollyhocks behind it. The hollyhocks keep overwintering, but they don't look so good this year.
One of my wine barrel planters with ornamental chili's, geranium, marigold, and Zinnia.
Much of the same in the second barrel plus James' arm. I kinda just threw them in there together since I had all these plants and had to put them somewhere.
My Coconut Geranium and a Coleus. I started my flowers a little late so they are still itty bitty.
My Genovese Basil are coming up I just started in the greenhouse. The basil in the garden isn't doing as well as I would have hoped so I'm starting some more. This kind is supposed to be really good for pesto. Mmmm... James loves pesto too. ; ) He's definately not going to be a meat and potatoes guy like his daddy. Thank goodness.
More little green sprouts. They were coming up in front of my eyes, seriously. They are loving the worm poop I tell ya.

The Fowl

My Cochin roo and his hens.
One hot chicken on a rock on a hot day.
The geese figured out how to get in the chicken pen to get to there water. Maybe they need to learn how to keep thier water cleaner instead of dirtying it in 5 seconds.

The Dogs

I'd have a worried look on my face too if the dog was smelling my bum.
Aw. . . Maddie and Shelby are buds.

Tobias Our Friendly Buck

Dude I can see up your nose!
Full head shot.
He's really interested in my camera today. So funny!
Minna and her youngest boy.
Marley (Minna's oldest) and my favorite. Shhhh! Don't tell the others K? With the Cochin roo.

James and the garden. We're having some cool weather here. Can you tell, James is donning a sweatshirt and pants in the sunshine. That breeze is quite cold. It rained a couple times yesterday. Usually it is in the 90's right now and the air conditioning is on. It's supposed to be in the 90's this weekend. On the left of James (the bush) is a pomegranite bush. So excited about pomegranite's. The other that is not pictured is covered in blooms. On the right of James in the background is the tomatoes. I will have to get more pictures of the fruit trees. They are covered in fruit this year. Yeah!
