Simple Beauty

My plan was to cut and sell my sunflowers….but, I just couldn’t. They were covered with honey bees and monarch butterflies. I have a hard time thinning plants in the spring and pulling volunteers growing in unlikely places….I don’t know…it just pains me to pull them. I have a volunteer squash plant growing outside of my compost bin among my raspberries and I didn’t have it in me to pull it. Last year my squash didn’t grow, so I thought this would be my backup squash…..Wouldn’t you know it….it’s a butternut squash. Prolific to say the least. I also planted them under the sunflowers. I’m not really a fan of butternut squash….but I will be this year….that and pumpkins!
