homer's farm: 6/16-17/14

we swung by a week ago friday, so i could get some zinnias and strawberry plants.  it was drizzling a bit and we weren't really working that day, so g stayed in the car.  i found this pic on my camera later and assumed it was from him.  he said he was playing jurassic park and was waiting for a t-rex to come through those trees.

now this is my kind of blooming onion!  wow!  is that gorgeous, or what?!  i've decided that i'm definitely planting onions in my own yard next year if only to see some more of these beautiful blossoms.

homer picked a bouquet of zinnias for joree.  too sweet.

tasty treats i brought home for me and the neighbors.

and then we went back on Saturday to work.  i pulled pig weed for two hours straight. what a workout!  my butt hurt on sunday.  and look!  the rogue sunflower bloomed!

this day we picked three 5 gallon buckets of cucumbers and learned how to dig potatoes from the edges without pulling up/disturbing the whole plant.
