Blooms!

































































Summer squash blooms! I must confess somewhere I had assumed that our lack of knowledge and experience in our food growing venture would lead to disappointment. So even though we've only harvested a few nibbles here and there. This in itself is a rewarding sight. The second picture is of the cucumbers, lettuces and beans. The third is a stairway my brother built for us. I love it wild, but I'd like to keep it tidy and add a retaining wall on the right. The last image makes me think we'll need to build some more faerie houses soon.

Beautiful. My family used to dredge those blooms in flour and dry them. I have yet to make them. Oooo... makes me hungry.

Wonderful post.
