First, we found a rouge "pumpkin" plant growing out of our burn pile. It makes me a little sad this plant looks better than any plant I intentionally planted in the pumpkin patch this year. We had a VERY wet June and powdery mildew took it's toll on a lot of the patch.
Side note: I am always sad when Alice looses how she pronounces a word wrong; I know she has to grow up and talk like a real person, but can't she say "pum-quin" for ever?!!?
How beautiful is this cream and green squash? Two of our plants crossed last year and this is the result.
Things you have to say when raising a brave child : "No, please don't try to hold the spider, it is busy. I know it is pretty, but we don't want to break it's web" What I am really thinking : "If you touch that spider I am going to run away screaming and probably cry."
I have made a promise to myself that I would never kill an outside spider because they do good.... But if she comes in my house I WILL put a cup over her and ask my husband to squish her later.
