birds catch on....I am registered with the backyard habitat program so I don't want to scare them, but I also love scarecrows and wish I would have kept track of all I have helped make with grandkids as their entry for the fair. But this year, I am entering one in my name..the grandkids have all grown up and are raising babies. The one I am working on isn't one but a man and woman holding hands...still needing some supplies to finish but I have till mid Sept. to get it done. The one I am posting today is one who resides in my potting shed. She keeps me company out there and looks a bit like a librarian. She isn't named but perhaps I should work on that since she is a permanent resident.
I created one jar of pickles yesterday, yes only one but that was all the cucumbers I had with my first picking. There will be more as I see lots of little ones. I make a sweet dill and they are so easy and always popular. I also picked beets and made Harvard beets for dinner and harvested a nice Savoy cabbage. It is wonderful what a litle seed can produce for our tables.
