We had quite a lot of rain, and then no rain in July. My beloved day lilies seemed to come and go in the blink of an eye. I picked the tomatoes and basil and parsley and summer squash and potatoes in good time, but got way behind on the yellow beans. Probably because of the odd weather my sweet peas grew and budded but never blossomed. Anyhow, as October progressed I got the bright idea that maybe if we let the animals into the garden area, aka the side lawn, that they might do some cleaning up for us. So yesterday we did just that. So far, they've just nibbled the lawn and some lilac leaves but we're going to try for a few hours each day, and hope they will enjoy the overgrown squash and sweet pea leaves. We'll see. If nothing else, it is a humorous pleasure to see them so close to the house.
Do you think they'll eat those huge squashes?
Daisy by the clothesline! What a mess the day lilies are!
Looking out the screen door at sheepies!
