Zucchini Blossoms



The blossoms are coming like mad and six plants are spreading everywhere. We will have zucchini until the end of time. PD, I am wondering, there are many blossoms on the plants right now. If I pick them will more come? For some reason I am not wanting to disturb them, they are so cute. The zucchinis are tiny right now, it's not quite time to pick... In other news, the lettuce is slutty and wanted to be spread all over. The weeds are insane and there are little snakes and frogs that sit with me in the garden. It's super cute. It would be easy to stop doing everything and just garden.

Last night I started some paintings that have the feeling of real paintings, not just fake practice paintings but real ones. I think I was channeling Dubz as I got way into the schmearing. The chum-hurling. We see if it stays. Art is weird. I am channeling the Romance of a bygone era. Why. I don't know.

Dial-up sucks. Reowr.

dubz said...

hooray for chum! throw it mm. see what happens. you can always tame it later.

MM said...

Yeah that is what I am thinking. Time to make a mess and not know what is coming next rather than pin the image down too quickly. Swirls and stabs, skittle-colored business.

MM said...

Dubz I hope the donut shop does not sap the life force urine party out of you today.

peeds said...

MM! What a beautiful, delicious and nutritious sight this morning. My bathing suit area is throbbing. Don't pick yet. I am sure there will be lots for the weekend of debauchery. I am counting on it.

I know you are schmearing like a madwoman! I can just see it and I say YES!

dubz said...

oh, mm. the donut shoppe = hell. i am sick of it. can dubz pick weeds in your garden for $$? i want OUT.

peeds said...

Sorry Dubzy. I am none too thrilled about my bagel shop dealings. I fear I have no choice at this point.

hammy said...

Your flower is lovely MM and I am happy for your painting breakthrough. It is great!

dubz said...

hammy you are such a breath of fresh air! a veritable ray of sunshine, as it were. i will try to be optimistic in the face of endless donuts on a slow moving conveyor belt to hell.

yay mm! i wanna see these wild paintings.

MM said...

Ok I wait on the blossoms Peeds. Dubz if only you could come out and garden with me. We could beat each other up and alternate weeding with powerful pooper smacks.

Little Ham of Paw. I cradle you. I hope your relic-making is proceeding well. I bet it is.

sloth said...

mm, in my mind's eye, the garden and the paintings are mooshing together in a wanton explosion of fecundity! This image, it's helping me to hold it together here in this over-air-conditioned & cave-like cube. I am becoming cube-shaped & will need to be kneaded into a more inneresting form when we get to run-amok. Or you could just use me as a coffee table...

dubz said...

sloth, are you really in a cube? i am chained to a faux-scandinavian L-shaped desk with piss tubes. i am also naked and covered with self-induced lesions.

deli-slicer said...

Dubzy, that sounds terrible. At least the piss part of it. Quit now or forever hold your pee.

sloth said...

Dubz, I find this talk of stark architecture and skin lesions to be strangely exciting. I hope you are able to pollute your surroundings in some way? Ventillate the piss-tubes with an X-acto blade maybs?

Yes I am in an actual cube, which is acting upon my body and psyche like one of those car-crusher machines. Soon I will be stackable.

martin said...

will you make zucchini bread? my mom makes yummy yummy zucchini bread. i am so hungry for it right now.

dubz said...

martin, i have the BEST recipe. from mamma dubz. it will curl your toes.

sloth said...

hmmmmm, sounds like a good camp activity, dubzy.

MM said...

Martin I am definitely going to make zucchini bread. I must. I tried to make some last year for UF's birthday and used a recipe that called for pine nuts. Unfortunately I did not taste them first and it turned out they were rancid so 2 loaves were ruined. We through them into the pond, ritual style. I am sure the pond is toxic now. That is why I see 8-eyed vampire fish with lady legs in their mouths. That is why. It is not the drugs.

Dubz I want your mom's recipe. Your skin lesions are making me hungry.

Right?

MM said...

Oh oops again I meant we THREW them in the pond not THROUGH them. Sloth I definitely have significant damage to all brain regions. I used to be so grammatically and spelling conscious. Back in the day.

dubz said...

Love feelings are happening up in here, directed towards you, MM. Just saying. Just got finished blushing over a comment you made on your last post.
Meanwhile, wishin' I could see your jardin & relique nouveau action with my outer eye, since my inner eye says they are thrilling.

Eeep! Quick! Hide me in the tender busom blossom of zucchini.

a friend told me this: ""the eagle spirit perched on my penis and told me it should be inside you.""

bambino said...

when we gonna see you MM :)

Regi said...

mm There is a disturbance in the karmic energy force because your in your woodsy paradise. The curator at this museum calls me MR.(???)! I wonder if you might be doing something they would like. If your interested in this place tell them your a friend of the family because someone you know considers you to be.

dubz said...

hooray! the blog is back. i think that's actually an elton john song.

MM said...

Relief!!! The blog is back to my bosom. Yay. Also the eagle spirit is perched on my back penis. I will make a new post later. I will.

sloth said...

oh thank zod. I was ruining my monitor by drawing pretend mm posts on that blank white screen.

The Capt'n said...

Oh my god, now I can go on living.
Seriously, that was an existential blow to my lil' world up in here. I guess that means you blogger bitchez mean a lot to me....

xoxo

MM said...

Morning Slothers! Morning Capt'n. I guess I would have to say you bitchez mean a lot to me too. Right now I am picturing all of your faces carved into a mountain like Mt. Rushmore. Yes.

USB said...

Dear MM:
O boy, are you going to be in trouble.. SIX (!!!) zucchini plants. Dahling, I hate to advise you, but be prepared for the worst - we only plant two and have far more than we can eat or give away...My advice is be merciless and start eating the blossoms (in a light tempora batter, deep fried - Delicious!) or pull at leaat a couple of plants up.
Otherwise the garden will be swamped!!!Throwing the excess in a compost may give rise to many zucchini plants next year!!!
Us and I are likely only going to be able to do the Delaware Family Roundup, although US may have a line on a cottage for our next long weekend...Love to you and UF.

The Capt'n said...

I hope that wasn't a crude or knarly dumb way to say I love you. Maybe I should have just tried saying I love you.

gree c. said...

AlsoArthur said...

Hi kids!!
Dial up sucx. I miss you guys.I was out hiking today, it was lovely, one part of the hike took me through a glade like area where the woods got denseand moist and so dark it was like being inside a woody cathedral except without all the christian stuff and more dirt, everything was covered with a carpet of emrald green moss... I want to go back tomorrow and rip up all that moss and bring it home to cover the roof of The Mounds, would that be so bad? In other news, my legs bones have the consistancy of toothpaste also they are shakey.
MM, your new paint slathering technique sounds awsome.Can't wait for studio visits...right, nudge nudge.

mountain man said...

Captn = I love you more than anything. No kidding. You are the cutest.

Gree C. = Slutty lettuce pix coming soon.

USB = I am ready for the zucchini take-over. I don't care. I can handle it.

Corny = OMG. Could I possibly miss you more? Could you be more witty and perfect?
