There's Blooms On Them There Plants!

I took a little stroll around the raised beds this afternoon while I gathered some Cayenne to go with my dinner. Some of the tomatoes are blooming and there's buds on the green beans.

The old pepper plants are putting new blooms on since we gave them a good dose of food and tied the stalks up.

The squash are growing this time around. So far nothing has decided to have the plants for dinner. Come to think of it, I haven't seen any grasshoppers in the garden for a few days. Guess they must be trying to move the ants out of their homes so the grasshoppers will have a winter home. BOO HISS....

Another thing that has helped the garden is the showers we've gotten in the last two weeks. Good rain water always makes the plants happy.

A meal of fresh squash, green beans, cucumbers, peppers, tomatoes and some green onions around the first of November is looking very inviting. Wish y'all could join us.
