Birdhouse Gourds

The Birdhouse Gourds are growing great. The vine is well over 10 feet long and there are approximately 20 gourds formed and growing beautifully.

This is an image of the largest gourd growing.

The Luffa Gourds are slow growing compared to the Birdhouse gourd. They are now a little over 6 feet long, maybe more. They hang not flowered yet but hopefully they will soon.

Next Project

Since June 15th I have been working on another project, a deck with a trellis on top.

I completed the deck over the first weekend but was trying to find someone, at a reasonable price, to dig the holes and put in the post.  the average price that I received was $250.00.  I was not gonna pay that for 8 post (also need 4 for a fence).

So after trying to get my nephews to help out I decided to try and tackle it myself.  I DID IT.  It was not as hard as I thought it would be.

Due to cost of the wood I am not able to put up the trellis at this time.  Instead I ordered a shade sail from Amazon that was suppose to be delivered today.

In all the years that I have ordered from Amazon this is the first time that I did not get my order by their stated date.  I will post a picture once the shade sail finally gets here.

Thought for today:  Conquer what intimidates you.

The past should be the past. It can destroy the future. Live life for what tomorrow has to offer, not for what yesterday has taken away.

Patches

This beast of a pig belongs to a neighbor who also has another potbellied pig, 2 ducks, 2 huge dogs and a few chickens.

When I titled this post Patches it reminded me of a song by Clarence Carter that I have not heard in many years. The song is also titled Patches. Check it out on YouTube.

Flower of the Day 7/13/19 – Bee Happy

Happiness is a choice, not a result. Nothing will make you happy until you chose to be happy. No person will make you happy unless you decide to be happy. Your happiness will not come to you. It can only come from you.

You don’t always need a plan. Sometimes you just need to breathe, trust, let go, and see what happens.
