Sixes and Sevens

Six = the total number of squash bugs I drowned in the garden today. Six! I thought they'd hold off another month or so. Amazing how the plants are a beacon.

Seven = The girl woke up this morning and immediately came to our room and asked, "Mommy, what's that bright thing outside my window?" She had slept until 7:15. That "bright thing" was the sun. We're usually long out of bed when the sun rises. It's proof positive that the mornings really do come early at our house.

  1. I am terrified of the squash bugs already, and my plants haven't peeked through the soil yet! They were terrible last year and all I had was cukes. This year I'm growing cukes, 2 winter squashes and pumpkins, eeeeeK!!!
