Rainy day in the garden

I didn't get out there until this evening because it was rainy and dreary today. I only saw 2 worm/caterpillar thingies on my squash tonight - yay! Either the rain or I've been keeping up with them good. When I went out yesterday evening I found a bunch. I wonder if they hatch in the evenings then eat all night? They were miniscule when I came across them yesterday.

Since it was so dreary out we spent the day baking. Jake made blondies, all by himself. They were good! I made 3 loaves of regular bread and 2 loaves of cinnamon raisin braids. Take a look!

Here's a little guy who was resting on a leaf of my pepper plant. Hopefully he's working hard keeping the bad stuff away.

And, my spider finally learned his lesson! He left his anchoring strand of his web where I put it and hasn't flung it out to my barrier in the past 3 days. Good spider!
I was going to blog earlier and complain about how none of my bush beans are coming up and when I went out this evening I found 6 sprouts LOL. Guess I shouldn't be thinking of complaining. :) Maybe if I think about complaining tomorrow about all of my herbs.....


  1. Mmmm, the bread and brownies look delicious! I was going to make zucchini bread today, but I had to can tomatoes and pickles, so I just grated it and put it in the freezer for another day.

  2. That bread does look really good! Hopefully, you can get those worms under control, because they can do some damage.
