This little guy, who sprouted after we’d given up on sunflowers for the year, is much bigger now and about to bloom!

So much patty pan squash from a single plant!
A patch of these popped up in the high school garden last year, and they returned this year in a different spot! They’re so pretty!
Patty Pan Squash! This is the third one we’ve gotten from one plant, and there are more on the way!
Jill: Our garden has three stalks of corn—and we thought we’d only be getting a cob out of each of them, because that’s how many have been growing up until today. Today we found a one definite and few new potential cobs! :D
my new hobby to add to list
Earlier I mentioned not knowing what to do with Claire’s and my napa cabbage, and after a little Googling, I discovered that the white stalks can be used in Chinese style stir fry. (We added some carrots from the high school garden, which we’d swung by to water earlier in the day, so that’s what the orange is!)
We added two different stir fry sauces, and threw in some already cooked chicken when the veggies were ready for eating.
And when the chicken soaked up the sauce, we served it on a bed of rice. Yum!
