After a very bumpy start, my summer squash is actually producing. Just in time for powdery mildew. I am so thankful to have even a few of them, I don't even care. Well, I do, but I don't have time to do much about it. While wandering by the cucumber trellis, I spotted quite a few good-sized cukes, so those went in the basket, too. Tomatoes are starting - finally - to ripen, but the plants look like hell. I just hope they last long enough to keep the crop going.

This past Sunday, after dithering around for weeks, I finally made a new clothespin bag. For years, I have been using a system that does not work. For YEARS. Talk about slow on the uptake. I have a seersucker (remember that stuff?) sleeveless granny top - sort of a cross between a short muu-muu and an apron - that I have been using as a wearable clothespin holder. This means stuffing the clothespins in both pockets, reaching down, then up, down, then up and then having to reach across and down when I run out of pins in one pocket. Awkward, to say the least.
My new bag:
And, to close today's post, a dose of cuteness.
I have been trying to get a pic of all three of them - I've come close, but no cigar. Since Pepper is never further than 10 inches away from me, it's easy to take his picture. Crouching waaaay down.
