I was so busy last week that I never got that recipe blog post up. I will do that this week as soon as I can locate the camera that has all the pictures! I used my daughter's camera to take a bunch of photos of the eclipse yesterday--well, OK, the shadows from the eclipse. I thought they were so pretty. I didn't expect this to happen for some reason, but it was so fun to see crescents all over the place. Did you see them too? These were formed via the shadows from the trees on the house, fence, and ground as the light from the sun was shooting towards earth in crescent format. I thought it was so pretty.
(And those are my huge tomatoes and not-quite-large banana peppers.) The pictures are all clickable to view in a larger format.
It isn't possible to tell from these pictures, but it was significantly darker due to the eclipse. Were you able to see it too or did you have cloud cover?
Pinhole "camera" for seeing the eclipse. We didn't have the cool glasses or welding gear (lol) so we did what worked for us. It was great fun.
Long shadow crescents.
This is my bean bush forest. I think it is so funny how they are up on little stalks. They are growing well.
This is one of my favorite areas in the garden. It has a lot of weeds, but mixed in throughout are naturalized fuzzy mint plants, lemon balm, gladiolas that are popping up in the back, my zucchini EarthBox is doing well there on the right, and the pepper EarthBox is chugging along. We actually have peaches on that tiny little peach tree too.
I really hope they taste good and that we get them before the birds do. :D
My black bins are doing well too (and so is our Annie dog).
I keep thinking of what we will eat when these things are a few months old!
And here is my pre-pesto. Soooo excited about this.
And my pre-cucumbers. :D
Evidently we had a chicken that couldn't get to the coop fast enough. She laid it in the pen this morning. They all seem to fight over the laying box--the same laying box--every day. There are five boxes and they all want the same one. Go figure. They are a little like feathery toddlers. :D
Here is our big dope, Rocky. He is a funny dog.
So did you get to see the eclipse? How does your garden grow?
Have a lovely Monday!
