It's Been a Long Time

Sights like this are unusual as of late, so I'm giddy.

Woohoo!!! Hopefully it will mature before the frosts.
Woohoo! Woohoo!!! Second round of bush beans. I harvested them last time when they were about this big. Do I need to let them get bigger?
Woohoo! Woohoo! Woohoo!!! These are the Alaska peas. I can't believe they're flowering in this 90 and above heat.
Haven't seen much of this in the corner yard recently, so it's something to be excited about. I can also already see little radish and cucumber seedlings popping up and the broccoli, cauliflower and cabbage seedlings are getting their true leaves. There are two tomatoes that will come out tomorrow or Saturday. They're the largest I've gotten so far. Are you getting your fall crops in?
The morning comes early, but not before I finish watching the best movie ever made.
Raising Arizona.
HA! I love that crazy film.


  1. I'd say those beans were ready. They look like the size I pick. Raising Arizona is a really good movie, and my favorite part is when they are eating cereal. It's so gross - it's funny!

  2. I'll pick them tomorrow then, thanks for the affirmation.

    We always loved the movie. Then we had the boy. It is SOOOO much funnier now.

  3. Maybe I will try the Alaska peas! Those beans look perfect now...if you wait too long (like I do sometimes!) they get all bumpy looking! I think that is my dad's favorite movie! And I agree it is soooo much funnier at my age now with 2 kids!

  4. Me! Me! I'm getting my fall crops in! I have beets, carrots, onions, bush beans, lettuce and spinach planted so far. I'd have planted today, but the wind is blowing too hard. It would blow the seed away, or blow my neighbor's big dead tree branch down onto my head and kill Granny. I decided to stay safe in the kitchen instead. ;-)

    LOL, the word verification is sycolon (cyclone?)...the wind isn't blowing THAT hard!

  5. Kudos on the second go around, and for fall crops popping already! I started my onion seeds today, but everything else needs to wait a few more weeks. Everything else is just slowly chuggin;' along...

  6. The beans look perfect and definitely ready to pick. I am pleasantly surprised that my sugar snap peas are still flowering and producing - in August. Go figure.

    I have alot of items in the garden that are fall crops and are just coming on line or will be starting around September. I aim to have fresh produce coming from the garden year round - so I am almost constantly planting new successions behind the current crops.

  7. Hi! I'm trying to remember if I've been here before. Our blogs have similar names. Mine is because we live on a corner lot. Your beans look just right for picking. I like them on the small side. They are more tender. We had one meal from our beans, then the rabbits ate them. I think I'll try pole beans next year.

  8. Hi sue! I don't know if you've been here, but I've been by yours several times.

    I picked those beans last night and they were yummy. Come back soon!!
