I did a strawberry theme a bit back when I had purchased these two gorgeous strawberry plants that Wal-mart was selling . . . it has been some time since I purchased those plants & to tell you the truth . . . mmm, the plants ain't so beautiful anymore . . . well I tried but I really did not give it a full fledge effort . . . they are still out there & have a few berries . . .the past ones the plants presented got quickly nibbled on by some critter that scampers about in the dark of the night . . . not sure what is munching them thou I suspect it could be a local skunk ( Hub saw a white one out there one nite ) . . . then again we also got racoons & opposums as well . . . but the other day I noted a whole lotta slug slime around the plants soooo it could be some slugs as well . . . anyhoot I have given up the thought of berries for ourselves & have opted to let the critters enjoy them as much as possible . . . . did you know that the strawberry is not a true berry at all? Yeah, blew my mind away when I read this tib-bit Fragaria - Wikipedia . . . .
Right now, matching to the new blog theme, we are in the process of growing some watermelons . . . love love LOVE me watery-melons . . . will they grow? mmmm, reckon we will have to wait & see . . . speaking of seeing . . . have you seen the square watermelon ? Wowzers on the true sticker shock for these cuties!!!!!!!!!! I will stick to the regular shape thank you!
The other day for Father's Day we got Hub a Watermelon shaped ice cream cake made by Friendly's called a Wattamelon Roll . . . we hadn't one of these since when our son turned 4 years old & yep that was quite some time back fer sure . . . it was really neat to see our youngest go on about this was her newest favorite ice cream cake
Have you ever heard of a Doughnut Peach ? I hadn't until we were in the grocery store the other day strolling about the Produce Section . . . that is when my youngest saw them, Doughnut Peaches, which resemble a peach that has been run over . . . they have this squished appearance . . . a cute squished . . . well actually maybe a more squashed appearance to them . . . so being adventurous we decided to give them a try & I gotta say . . . . love love LOVE them!!!!
So we did a bit of a internet search on them & found out they are known as Saturn Peach
but also called Doughnut Peaches & a few other names . . .
God, I look up to Your banner - my focus on Your unfailing character. You are always my protection and hope. Thank You for leading me to triumph! Amen
