We have to back up a bit, since it's been a while...this picture below was taken 8/17:
We enjoyed two big, beautiful cauliflowers from the garden. I harvested this one the day after I took the picture:
On 8/18 I found these ants farming aphids on my okra plants. This was super neat to watch them "milk" the aphids!!
By 8/29, my pepper plants actually had peppers, and where I was sure that we would never have more peppers this season, now we have an abundance! I am amazed at what God has done in our little garden!
I brought this flower outside hoping it would be pollinated and make some seeds...we are going to need them this winter since we are studying botany:
This flower is just about ready to make its first bloom...it's been a long time waiting:
On 9/7, my garden was looking very wimpy and dehydrated. I hadn't been out for a couple of days, and the little sunflowers had popped open:
Mitch said they were good, but not as good as Janet makes. :) That was just about the best compliment ever.
I watered my garden, and the next morning, 9/8, it looked much better:
These bumblebees were scrounging for every last bit of pollen they could get off my little flower.
So, we harvested from our garden cucumbers, tomatoes, green peppers, okra, cauliflower, a handful of sunflower seeds, a head full of knowledge, and a heart full of appreciation for God's creation.
God is good!
