Stuff on the Saturday Spot.......
The vine continues to put out these large blooms. I tend to forget that it isn’t a flowering plant but it is the bloom to start the process of growing pumpkins or muskmelon. I keep thinking they should stay open for a long time but usually they are faded after one day. One of my blogger friends had a husband that says it will be pumpkins. I am good with that. I keep watching the vine to see what starts to form on it.
The clay soil this is planted in was originally a vegetable garden. I am guessing the former owner fertilized his vegetable garden as I have never seen the flag iris to ever be so tall. It is great to have it do so well after one year of growth. I do water most everyday as it has kept things growing well. Our yards look totally dormant now and farmers south of us have a lot of crop damage because of a drought. Early rains were great but they just stopped coming.
It will be a quiet day at home on this Saturday. I hope we get rain but it sometimes get over predicted and it just doesn’t happen. I will water this morning anyway to be sure nothing droops. Thanks for checking in today. I do know people are checking in as my stats show me that I am being followed. I though about shutting down my Photo a Day blog but I do see I have loyal viewers there too. Everyone have a great day.
