Stuck sheep/garden update

This stuck sheep showed some real talent in getting her head in here.   She had to move forward while turning her head sideways.    However, getting her out took 2 of us.  One to pull her backwards and the other to twist her head.  She just kept pushing forward.  There are always lessons to be learned from these sheep.Once we helped her out, she was very happy to join her friends in a meal of grain.

The garden is giving us very large cantaloupe this year after starting out with giving us personal sided melons.   These are two people melons.   I am definitely saving seed from these.

This is the end of the cucumbers though there are still a few more zucchini and peppers in the garden.   This week, we will clean out some of the beds.

No photo as it seemed dangerous, but the honey bees are battling the wasp who would like to rob the hives.   Next year we will be putting up wasp traps.

    I hope the sheep learned her lesson and won’t do that again. You got some wonderful looking cantaloupes this year. If you can spare 3 or 4 seeds, I would love to plant some next year in my garden. Many years ago I had watermelons and cantaloupes, but this year the transplants did not make it. The rabbits got the first blooms and I could not prevent them (or something else from eating every flower that came on the vine. I plan to get a hoop house or make my own protection for a small plot next year. :)

    Glad you were around to help out the sheep. I’ve heard that they aren’t the smartest of animal? The rabbits here are driving me nuts!
