Only one pumpkin so far, and it’s the one I hand pollinated two weeks ago. I found something to give a sense of scale; check back next week for another shot of our little friend.
We’ve gotten some tomatoes, but I’m almost ready to go ahead and pull out the plants because of the late blight.
The sunflowers are nice however. I save the heads in the freezer and put them out mid-winter for the squirrels and birds. We had one massive head — bigger than a dinner plate — last year that lasted about 4 days. The sky is an amazing shade of blue at this time of year.
We went up to Corbett’s Dam to see the salmon jumping; not too many fish, or spectators, yet. There is a fish ladder, for the ones who figure it out to move farther upstream before spawning.
