I soaked and planted Martha’s butternut squash seeds this week, and look! there are sprouts this afternoon. And this one was still wearing its little hat. Sorry, I still have not mastered the close-up focus on this camera. I did not start working on the “rooster” project until a couple hours ago, so there is no new photo yet; i will say that i have got the sun fixed up a bit and will begin sewing it down after i feed myself (i have to be careful; sometimes i do not want to stop to eat). And i had to phone Cielo to say that her “chickenville” has been coming through to me clear as a…bell? Well no, i guess it has been as clear as if i was there!
