This morning I was up and in the garden early, thinking I would be done before it got so hot but I wasn’t. I have three rows of sugar snap peas and I’ve been picking one row each day, shelling those and putting them up each night. With this heat, they’re about done so this morning I picked all three rows and it took forever and it was hot and I may never get done shelling peas! This weekend I will get Vince to pull the vines out and till it up so I can plant okra in that spot.
Once I was done picking the peas, I dug enough potatoes for dinner, picked the tomatoes that were ready and gathered the eggs. I walked into the house with my bucket and felt like a real country girl! I’m so loving the life we’re living here.
That’s a pretty big pile of peas, isn’t it? Aren’t the potatoes and eggs pretty? I had planned to get back out there this evening and do a bit of watering and fertilizing but never got around to it so I’ll be back out in the garden about daylight in the morning.
I love having a garden and having chickens and you know what else? I love having a blog so I can share all my excitement with you, the readers! Thanks for reading and thanks for all your comments. I don’t always have time to respond but it makes me happy to know you’re enjoying reading about what we’re doing here.
