Veggie Garden in Bloom




Cucumbers are in the height of production, there are fresh ones every day.




The cucumbers view from the other end.  





A lone volunteer sunflower amongst the veggies.    



Broccoli and green onions.  



A row of young tomato plants. 



Though still green, the tomatoes look healthy and firm.   Looking forward to seeing them turning red.



These look like cucumber vines, but they are not.   These are winter melon vines.  Cucumber and winter melon are in the same family, their leaves look about the same but the fruits sure look and taste different.

Teresa Adopts White Kitty Gidget



White kitty, looks like Bao Bao and Bei Bei, but it is not.




It's Gidget!   If you recall Teresa who found Bao Bao and Bei Bei on May 12 and posted on her FB.  Teresa loves white kitties as much as Betty does but she already had two older cats so Betty adopted Bao Bao and Bei Bei, see:

ttps://ncag.blogspot.com/2022/05/betty-welcomes-two-white-kittens.html?m=0h

Betty and Teresa share the same kind of love for cats especially white ones, it's easy to develop a bounding experience and friendship.   

     

Unfortunately one of Teresa's older cats Evie passed away last week and the remaining cat Gizmo is very lonely.  Teresa finds this white kitten at the Merced County Animal Shelter on Saturday.   It is a long hair white female with blue eyes, Teresa names her Gidget.  Gidget is a lucky kitten, she is one of the over 200 cats and kittens at the Merced shelter.  If anyone is interested in adopting one, check out the shelter.   If you act before August 31, there is a discount and there are lots of great cats and kittens to choose from.  The adoption fee includes all the vaccination and spay/neuter.
