I have been pretty excited watching as our small garden grew this year, the addition of the goat and sheep poo has really enriched the soil. Last week I went out and picked a few of the zucchini and yellow squash to make a stir fry. I didn't want them to get too large and seedy - note the deck of cards for comparison.
Turns out what I thought was zucchini turned out to be cucumbers! I have never seen cucumbers grow so large. I went back out into the garden and while I found many, many huge cucumbers I didn't see any zucchini. Darn seed plants.
Don't get me wrong, the family is devouring the cucumbers. I was just craving hamburger stuffed zucchini smothered in cheese.
I am an Ocicat. My duties include; security (rodents), counter intelligence (predators), infiltration (sneaking) and night surveillance.
I live in NE Minnesota on 10 wooded acres with; my best friend Mocha, three dogs, chickens, Guinea Hens, Nigerian Dwarf Goats, Cascade Sheep, Icelandic sheep, and a few humans.
When we moved here it was completely wooded, our plan is to turn this property into a working homestead.
