July is in full swing. My luffa plants are now on my balcony. Each year at the garden plot, they suffer from either theft, lack of water or frost too soon. So - I have them now growing on the balcony. One Luffa is all I'm asking for.

The Moth was spotted on a walk. It was so pretty but unfortunately barely alive. Not sure what type. Some sort of Lunar but I'm not sure if Lunar Moths even live in the Chicago Suburbs. Research for another day.

Baby Desert Roses - these are like little Solders. Too Cute

I was lounging by the pool but I can't sit still for very long. So I took a pic of the toes. Just being silly.

Now - the rest of the pictures are of The Children's Farm in Palos Park, IL. The Master Urban Farming Class I'm taking has one more class next Wednesday. It is such a surprising place. All around Palos Park are factories, power lines, highways and a million people. You turn into the drive and it seems to all disappear.

We were being shown irrigation methods in the garden and I snapped a few pictures. The corn was absolutely perfect. I have never been able to grow corn from seed successfully so this was just amazing to me.

The mini apple tree was so cute and well pruned. Every yard should have a mini like this.

If you have the chance - it's a must visit place.
