Before heading outside to do my morning rounds, I spotted 3 kittens out the window…
… playing on the roof of their cat house!
Of course, as soon as I went outside, they ran off, but mystery kitten stayed to spy on me.
It was so funny to see her hide behind the frame, pop her head up, hide, peek, hide, peek… watching me as I brought out some kibble for the outside cats.
In checking out the squash bed, I just had to go looking for our one birdhouse gourd that was developing.
The one, sad, squishy little gourd!
The frosts have completely decimated all the squashes, so it’s time to prep the beds for the winter. I don’t know that we’ll plant squash in the same places next year, but we will definitely plant them again. With what we learned this year, I hope to be able to do more to protect them for late and early frosts.
The squash beds will not be cleaned up today, though. After lunch, we will be planting flower bulbs in the maple grove, in areas that are the hardest to mow around.
I’m really looking forward to it! 🙂
