Garden ramblings and club meeting this Friday (10th)Posted Monday, September 6, 2010, at 1:08 PM
We meet every other Friday until a few weeks before Christmas and then start up again in mid-January. Come visit with us folks.
I have REALLY fallen behind with all the hot weather this summer, but what a beautiful weekend we have had. I wish I could say I got a lit done, but the rest of life took precedence.
Has everyone had a large influx of hummingbirds lately? As I sit here watching about 10 do battle for the feeders I wonder how they found us as all. We sit in a small opening of trees and I would think in the scheme of things this opening is a small target. Maybe more and more have flagged it as a watering hole for their trip back South?
We had a problem with one of our cats figuring out how to attack one of the bird feeders this past week. We had to move it further from the house, which means we can not see it as well, but it is better than losing hummers to the cats.
The potted vegetables have just about given up for the season. All except the Bolivian peppers, which continue to decorate the patio.
I think I have learned my lesson about ornamental morning glories. Way too invasive for me and way too prolific. Last year I grew a few and this year I have been pulling them from everywhere, potted plants, cacti gardens, and flower beds that were not even close tot he originals.
We awoke this morning to find that PITA had picked 5 squash, including the bitter melons. I think I will have to have a massive cooking and freezing party very soon. Don't accept any invitations without checking!
Our batch of kittens are ready to go to their new homes. Deb wants to give them all away, her mother wants to keep two and I really don't know how to choose who goes or stays. Even though three of them look alike, they have different personalities and one is especially attached to Momma.
