GARDEN BOUNTY

We plant & water. God makes it grow.

This is what we'll be doing today. Canning green beans & doing something with zucchini.....LOL. Last week we got 3 buckets of green beans & it made 10 quarts. This will probably can 6 or 7 quarts. It is so nice to only have 1 row of beans & just can a little at a time. There was a time when we'd plant 3 or more rows & can 40 or more quarts at a time. But since we still have at least 20 quarts left over from last year, we only planted 1 row this year. It is nice to stay ahead of the beans. :)

The corn should be ready any day. We had corn on the cob with our supper last evening. I think it just needs a few more days, although we have had a coon start getting into it, so it's close. Last year we lost about 1/3 of our corn to coons, the little brats.



And here's our biggest anticipation:

Waiting on the tomatoes to ripen is SO hard. It won't be long now!




We're also waiting on the cucumbers. Last year our cucumbers failed. We had tons of blumes, but after getting only 5 or 6 cucumbers, the plants wilted & died. Hoping for a better crop this year!

This picture of the kids in the corn was taken a few weeks ago. I'm really looking forward to having corn in the freezer again.

Thank you LORD for the bounty we are receiving & are about to receive!!!
