Copper has worn sores on Dulcinea's hip bones. I think its safe to say she's adequately bred. Her milk production dropped and is coming back up now. Helen will get dried off in July and Dulci in August. That will be a shock to the system. I picked a whole mess of squash today, as you can see. Been picking enough for a meal or 2 everyday and still got this many today. May be seeing the first signs of pickleworm in the dark green zucchini, but I'll have to cut it open to be sure. Finally have a moderate amount of fruit forming on the canteloup though we've had blossoms for weeks. Almost ready to pick our first butternut. Pumpkin has yet to blossom but the vine is plenty strong. Watermelons are seriously struggling. Not sure why. Blossoms have started on the cucumbers. Couple blossoms on the peppers and beans and 2 amaranth plants are getting big enough to pick from. A bug has been munching on the collards but there's still plenty for us so I'm letting it be. Doesn't seem to be anything too detrimental. New layers have popped out 3 eggs this morning. None from the leghorns as they lay white eggs. Forgive the lack of our morning daylillies in the picture- the kids already ate them.
