I didn't think I'd have a harvest Monday for today, but then I went outside to help train the beans up the rest of the string and found this!Well, the tomatoes, that is. Woohoo! It's only 1.8 lbs of tomatoes, but it's good for me. My harvest basket has been doubling as a back to school materials receptacle since we haven't been harvesting much these days.
Here's the good part. Look at THIS!You know what those are!? Zipper peas!!!
No, they're not from my garden. *drat!* My neighbor offered me more of hers and I held her kid for ransom until she complied. She cooked these for me, but if you cook zipper peas for about 40 minutes with either a beef bullion cube or ham hock and tons of pepper, it makes for good eating. Leave some snaps, however. Snaps are good. I can't wait until I have some of my own to cook up. Those plants are getting larger each day, but there's no way I have enough for a meal let alone to save.
I had to share these, because it's my blog and I can if I want to. ;)
The girl got a princess costume as a gift. Since she's so much of a runt, it swallows her whole. Here she is posing for her prom picture:The boy figured she needed saving. She disagreed:
She did let him 'save' her and busted a gut lauging (the reason the picture of her is quite unflattering), but that boy takes his job as a savior very seriously.He had his first day of kindergarten today. I freaked slap out when he didn't get off the bus with the rest of the kids. He had fallen asleep on the bus.
Poor, sleepy kid.
The morning comes early. Sweet gardening dreams.
