New Blooms ~ Puttin' Up Peas
A few zinnias have bloomed, and more are about to.
This one stumped us. It also made us smile. So cute. Just one lonely sunflower growing at the edge of the barn. Most likely planted by a bird or chicken.
Finally. One rose bush bloomed. A bug was eating them all down to the stem, and with care, they are slowly making it back to their original beauty.
We put up the last of the sugar snap peas, but had to be creative in the freezer. The new refrigerator is ordered, but there was nothing we could bring home immediately. Hopefully it will be here early next week. Hubby had a $50.00 gift card we used towards is. He won it when he played golf with the co-workers. Funny how that worked out.
Well, I'm off to check on the green beans. They should be ready in a day or so. Spaghetti squash is on, and the cucumbers are starting to climb the fence.
I'm pretty sure my wish list this year will be moving on to next year. Just too many replacements and repairs this year. Maybe I can squeeze in a pressure canner. I would really like to can potatoes this year.
