Or…maybe they are. Somewhere on the planet, I suppose rocks like these are still forming.
This is some of the quartz Hydra and I picked up on one of the hills on one of our regular hikes. The stuff in the front is shiny chips of bigger pieces and the stuff in the back has a rough exterior. I kind of like that raw quartz. We got a little carried away picking up samples today, but they’ll be used around the yard or maybe this jewelry maker I recently met will help me think of ways to use some of it!
The crook-neck squash are starting to grow! Makes me happy. We also have some Persian cucumbers about this size.
The best thing about the handful of sugar snap peas I am getting from my garden is sharing them with Dodger. He likes the little peas from inside and I have the pod. We are both excited every time. Love how the remnant of the blossom is still on the bottom of this one. Will plant more of these next year for sure.
Whole garden view, mostly for my benefit. It’s starting to fill in and not look like everything was planted way too far apart.
