The Littlest Hen

First cucumbers and squash were picked from the garden this morning.  Both Asian and pickling cucumbers, and yellow and patty pan squash.  There were also lambs quarters, chard, and a precious few raspberries and blackberries in my basket.  Garlic has been harvested, and is drying.  The onions will soon follow suit.  Our last Americauna left us Friday.  No obvious cause, so we're wondering if it was just the heat that got her.  I will miss her, our littlest hen, and her blue eggs that always looked so festive among the various shades of brown.

Sorry to hear about your little hen, it's always sad to lose a pet.
Your flowers are very cheerful! I read recently that Daylilies are edible, have you ever tried them?
