The window washer guy didn't show yesterday. The best laid plans sometimes don't make it onto the calendar. No worries. We were here the whole day anyway, and we'll just try it again in a week. It'll be another excuse to spend the whole day sewing. But I didn't spend the whole day sewing. I took a little walk out to the vegetable garden. Some of the sunflowers are having trouble standing on their own, and so we got some sturdier garden stakes while we were grocery shopping earlier in the week. I've been checking them each day to see who might have fallen over in the night. Sunflowers...hard partiers, no doubt.
While I was out, I took a few pictures of things that are growing there. I was sad to see two more of the green bean plants had been bitten off at the ground level. I'm left with just three bean vines now. We won't get many (if any) beans at this rate. We've come to the conclusion that a gopher is to blame, and now Mike has set a trap where we found some tunneling.
We're having more success with the melons. I found three flowers on a single plant.
