Hi Ho, Hi Ho...

 The green beans are looking great, in spite of the weird cold snaps we've been having. This bed also holds a small edamame patch and a few cukes down at the other end. It's about 30 -35 foot long.

Oregano. Planted in the bed where the old pea seed I planted didn't come up. I'm making REAL sure this year to date all pkgs of seed.  lol  Oregano is a perrenial that will come back with no special treatment.

    It's a glorious day here. Rained yesterday, but not a lot. Apparently it was saving itself to go up and knock the heck out of Judy's barn this morning. But it's 82 at noon here and tomorrow is supposed to be dry as well, with temps around 91.  We have no plans really for this holiday weekend,. but next weekend is our annual family reunion/camping weekend. I still haven't found anyone to come feed the animals while we're gone. Very worst case scenario--we don't camp and just go down for the big Sunday noon potluck. 

    I have hotdog and hamburger buns raising...they are whole wheat this time, because I am apparently out of white flour! (I know...I can't believe it either.)  I also am out of vital wheat gluten, which I use when making whole grain bread because it helps it rise better. Sigh...At any rate, I'm sure they'll be fine.  We will have smoked brats for lunch today, with some pickled beets and some devilled eggs. Maybe I'll open a jar of pickled peppers too, and serve it all up with chowchow...Also have some corn chips left I think, with salsa. Then I have to head down the road to sit with MissB. 

  I'm off to get some lunch ready, he should be home anytime. He's out picking up roofing felt and straw holiday weekend in the life of parttime homesteaders I guess.  We have to redo the roof this summer, and are going to start picking up supplies a bit at a time so we don't have to pay for everything all at once. The shingles we will, so that they will deliver them up to the roof, and save these old people from having to carry the damn things !

  Happy Memorial Day weekend everyone.

Just taking care of business are you? Sounds like you are living Billy Sim's advice: Mind your own business and kiss your own ass.

I love your garden! And it's coming along very nicely, those edamame, one of my favorite foods.

Since I don't eat red meat, the brats wouldn't tempt me, but they are the epitome of summer fun to many! Happy Memorial Day Weekend to you and yours!

The garden looks great! Wow! It is so hot there. We're finally supposed to hit the 70s today but it's only 60 so far and cloudy, so maybe, maybe not.

Have a great day!! :)
