I usually walk the dog a half mile or so every morning before breakfast. This morning we saw a momma raccoon and 4 little ones. NOOOOO! They love sweet corn, and mine is just now tassling. Hopefully my dog will keep them away.

Thanks Chris. I'll look it up and find out which ones I have. The closed blooms look like a large cigar. When they open they are about the size of a salad plate.

And we've been under heavy rain too. Flash flood warnings have been posted for two or three days.
Randy, l didn't know your part of In was zoned 5.We're in zone seven l believe. Although I noticed in the old farmers almanac a couple of years ago that we were zoned six. I need to recheck that and see if I misread it.

Lovely pictures everyone.
Does anyone else grow moonflowers? As the name indicates they bloom after the sun drops and look shiny, silver, and very large in moonlight. They well also bloom during the day if very heavy clouds hide the sun. They also smell wonderful. Similar to honeysuckle.

Good news, Randall! After the long rather cold spring we have a very hot week. Not much to harvest yet, only herbs, garlic and lettuce. The first butterflies are out and also a big black and white spider, hunting.

Enjoying fresh garden green beans, collards, raspberries, and peas, among a few other greens and reds, including my first tomato!

I think you love that old house, Joan, if only for the memories!

Happy 49th Patricia.   Joan, that's interesting.
