The fall garden

Jack has been busy getting the gardens ready to plant.

He plants in the regular garden the raised gardens and the greenhouse.

Currently lots of lettuce, cabbage, spinach, collard greens, mustard greens, and swiss chard.

I have no idea what else will be planted I do not even try to guess it anymore.

I just want my gourd seeds planted and my loofa seeds.

We have been giving everything away since the COVID19 Pandemic we felt like it was our way to give back to the community.

This fall our plans are to sell some vegetables.

Hopefully, I will have some pics in the next month.

 

A splash of purple

Mexican Heather is one of those plants you can buy that keeps putting on a show all year long.

It is actually false heather not sure how it got its name.

It’s fairly inexpensive and works out great as a border around a flower bed.  We probably have somewhere around 30 of these plants. They work out great for a spot of color in an area that might not have a lot of colors.

They seem to like it in the sun or partial shade they do well in both areas.

 

 

Snore Supplies

Our grandson Adrian is 4 years old and the youngest of the 7 grandkids.

He told his mom they needed to get Snore Supplies at first she could not figure out what he meant then she realized he wanted Smore Supplies.  He wanted to make smores on the fire pit.

Grandkids you gotta love them!

Birds on a wire

I took this picture back in the fall of 2015 but I love it.

There are places in our area that the birds gather on the high lines right before dark and that is the best time to get a picture like this because the lighting is not to bright.

I think this picture reflects the way our society is. Some people love being part of a large group others prefer small groups and some like going it all alone.

This is a story about Life and I think the birds understand it better than we do.

Sweet Potato Vine

This sweet Potato Vine was started from a few sprigs off another plant I had.

We had built small flower beds in front of the greenhouse to add interest little did we know this would happen. Now it is about 5ft. tall and 8 ft. wide.

This is pretty much in full sun from 10 a.m. on. The lizards seem to like it.

Some things like growing in Manvel, Texas. I think from this plant I will start a bunch of small ones to sell next spring.

Around here we are always thinking up ideas.

The great Okra giveaway

The okra in our garden is producing about 4 x of what we expected them to do.

We have given away about 4 bushels.

We have been giving okra away to people we know and having give aways for people we do not know and we still have okra coming out our ears.

We have one lady that has gotten about 12 gallons of okra from us.

With COVID19 still going on it only seems right to do this we did the same thing with our cucumbers.

If you have a kind heart give something back to your community.

Doing the right thing at the right time could give people some HOPE and put a smile on someones face.

I will be off the blog for a few days but will be back later in the week.

Good Morning

This was Saturday mornings sunrise in Manvel, Texas. I honestly thought I would miss it by the time I got out there.

The colors were very pink and orange with highlights of purple. Sunrise colors can change in 2 minutes and become something totally different so timing is everything.

Every sunrise means a new day to enjoy natures beauty that is right in front of us.

Crickets trainer

This is Amanda who is crickets trainer from Pearland K 9 Training. She is a CPDT-KA certified trainer with three years experience.

She and Cricket get a long great. Cricket has learned sit, stay, come on, down, leave it ( such as a treat etc). She will be learning let go this next week.

Then Cricket will be moving to socialization at the park. We have not been to the park since we have been isolating so this will be interesting for us both.

Walking down our street your not going to run into any people that are walking so there is no socializing her that way.

I want to be able to take Cricket on walks to the park and even to Petsmart or Petco without worry. With three dogs we would have to take turns going to the park.

We took this picture to show off Crickets size I think you all can tell she is just a tiny little 7 month old puppy.

It has been great working with Amanda I highly recommend her if you live in our area.

Cricket is 7 months old

Cricket is our 7 months old Cane Corso puppy who weighs about 115#’s.

The boys from this litter are around 125 – 130#s.

She is a very big girl who is very smart and very protective of me.

Shady Acres Rosharon does a wonderful job with the quality of their pups and picking out really good matches for breeding purposes. Our daughter has it figured out which colors of pups you will get with the colors of the male and females you breed.

The sunflowers on her head was something I wanted to do for fun. I love dog photography sessions and I love to capture the unexpected with a large dog.

Cricket loves the grand kids and tries to sit on them she wants so badly to be a lap puppy. She does not realize her size she just knows she is a puppy that drools a lot.

Every morning around 5 a.m. she whines and cries for her breakfast she does the same thing in the afternoon around 4 p.m. She is very verbal and is not ashamed to show you.

All three of the dogs get a long great and play well together.

Every dog has a unique personality and they all do little things to show off who they really are.
