Cantaloupes and Gourds
When I went to water the garden today, one of the cantaloupes was ready to pick (above top picture)! The pumpkin plants are growing even bigger. The birdhouse gourds are climbing to the top of the fence, and there are even more teeny tiny little gourds that are starting to grow (above bottom picture). Unfortunately, the tomatoes are a little past their prime. But the squash, okra and watermelon are still growing, so the garden is doing fine. Saturday will be the first day of July, and I've been thinking about school starting and all the things that we will be working on this year. Last year was the first year to use the Louisiana Comprehensive Curriculum, and we will be utilizing it even more this year. I've been working with some new software that we got at the end of the last school year, and I think that the kids will love it! Also, we have a workshop at the end of July, and I'm sure that we will get a lot of good ideas from it. More later!
