Sprinkler Anyone?

It's been a while since we took a tour of the garden. Shall we?

Swirling Water

Believe it or not, we didn't have any sprinklers that would work to water our little garden. This is one of the options we picked up this weekend for watering the garden. When this thing gets going I can stand there and watch the water swirl around for quite a while and be perfectly happy. Mezmerizing! It's a wonder that anything at all has grown this summer with the erratic watering schedule we've been keeping. And yet, it totally has.

Zucchini AlertWe must be doing something right. Just look at this zucchini! Hubbo and I are going to have a a yummy meal later this week. Now we just have to figure out what to do with it. Grill it perhaps. There is certainly more than enough for the 2 of us. I just love the idea that we can come home, pick a zucchini, cook it up and eat it super quick!

The Other Yellow SquashHere's something else new. The first of the squashes from the other set of yellow squash producing plants. Sorry I can't be more specific than that. I'll have to go locate the tags. You can totally tell that the 2 yellow squashes are different types because the color is so different. One is way brighter and more orangey than the other.

Playing in the garden was just a small part of our very satisfying weekend. We did a little shopping for home renovation stuff, a little visiting with my dad, a little reading by the pool, a whole lot of knitting, and we capped it all off with a lovely dinner out with friends. It was wonderful. What did you do?
