Garden Grows While I Make Donuts

Early morning watering in the garden was lovely.

Took more pictures of the tiny little insects with the yellow wings that are going to town on the face of our big sunflower.  They are doing rounds up there dancing in the pollen.

The tomatoes are multiplying and the cukes are gigantic.

The tiny insects on the sunflower are not alone. We have spiders. Hopefully, they are wrapping up the bad bugs.

I didn’t see any big spider wrappings but the two grasshoppers are m.i.a.

I’ve rigged up a batch of chicken wire and bamboo sticks and odds and ends to give the cucumber vines clinging space.

I hope there is natural hanging room from where the cukes place themselves.

They are going to get big and fat if this guy is any example of what is to come.

This morning will also be spent making big plush donuts! I’m trying to stock up early for the gifting season. Everybody loves donuts.

Making donuts is relaxing and they always look so cute. I hope to have dozens and dozens of them ready to go out the door by November.

Donuts are selling every week here at the DarcyArts studios and that is a good thing.

 

I made eleven chocolate donuts last year for a birthday party.
