89 degrees at 9 am and 89 at 9 pm but, much higher in between. First thing Evie & I picked more green beans while it was cool (not). 80 was the 6 am cool & no, I wasn’t up to see it!
But we did have a nice haul of green beans and dragon tongue beans
I love the thought of being as self reliant as possible, providing home-grown organic veggies for my family. Nutritious food that is free of chemicals & pesticides.
Food I can look at and say I know where this came from & how it was grown.
I love the smell of the plants and can’t wait to make sauce.
They must have been “resting” as they’re out of control now. I started to pull some last week when I realized what happened but, they are all so twisted upon each other I was afraid I’d create more damage trying to thin them. In the 4 foot section above I could see 20 assorted baseball sized melons growing.
I need recipes quick! I’ve found recipes for watermelon jam so that is on the list but, If any one has other proven recipes…give me a holler!
Our 4 first year blackberries have given me enough for a pie so far. Not a lot I know but, I had read not to expect any the cane’s first season so we’re very pleased.
This evening with Erika’s help I have 10 quarts of green beans cooling on the counter along with
Tomorrow the peaches!
Not a bad start to the canning season!
