|A New Flower Arrangement!|
Gardener M brought me two different types of gardenias from his garden! The yellow one was drooping and I stuck them in my blue and white teapot without doing anything much, but, I think it doesn't need any further arranging, do you? They do smell lovely!
While M watered the garden and did some pruning, I picked green beans and a single ripe cherry tomato:
I think I'll tweak the meal plan to include curried sauteed green beans (bonchi thel dala) for tonight's dinner!
I wasn't kidding earlier, when I said that the squash vine is trying to reach the house!
|"Eenie" the Butternut Squash Vine|
It has reached the pavers in front of the back steps!

This was the butternut squash flower five days ago, on Friday, September 22:
|A Female Butternut Squash Flower - 9/22/23|
Here it is today, Wednesday, September 27:
|A Baby Butternut Squash - 9/27/23|
The flower has fallen off and we have a baby butternut squash about the size and shape of a small light bulb! Woo hoo! This is the first time I'm growing butternut squash and I am all excited about it! The weather is nice and warm, right now, but, it is supposed to cool down again by the weekend. I hope it doesn't get too cold for the squash. Mama Cat has taken to sitting right next to the squash and I am hoping she will not sit on it and squash my baby squash! LOL! So far, it is the only butternut squash, but, I've two baby zucchinis, each about 4 inches long. I'm hoping they'll grow to about 6 inches to harvest them!
Today, I am grateful for:
- Another sunny and warm day (82F right now at 3:00 p.m.; a high of 85F according to the forecast; I just love this weather!)
- Flowers from M's garden
- M's help with the garden
- Today's harvest of green beans from the garden
- Baby squashes!
Today's joyful activities include doing another flower arrangement, picking beans from the garden, and watching my squashes grow!
How is your Wednesday coming along?
