How does your garden grow?

My sister grew quite a garden this year and we have all tasted the fruits (or vegetables) of her labor!  We have had squash,peppers, tomatoes so far and soon okra! She has been seen vacuuming  squash bugs off her squash and putting nets over her tomatoes! No chemicals for this country girl. Her hubby was organic before we even knew what it was and is still to this day. Sure make for gooood dinners!DSC03239DSC03242

Just for fun she decided to grow some sunflowers. They have not got had much sun lately and have their little heads down in shame.







For years Brenda and I talked every night about our children – you know – what cute thing they did that day or how mad we were at the little league coach for not playing our precious boys- or who was dating who now- weddings- babies but lately we spend hours talking about our gardens. How’s your coneflowers looking? how about your hydrangeas? What do you do with bugs? When do you  plant seeds? on and on and on…. I guess it is our new way of nurturing something now that our children are all grown up and out of the nest. For these 2 country gals our gardens are doing great – Thank you Lord for the rain!!!

My new favorite squash recipe for the summer!
