We have had so much rain, everything is flooded including our swamp of a yard. The grass is in desperate need of mowing, but the lawn mower would just sink if I even attempted it. It’s going to look like we brush hogged it by the time we are able to mow!
The garden has gotten off to a very slow start. I’ve had to replant much of it again.
You probably can’t see the little plants in this picture, but all the beans and purple hulled peas came up with the seconding planting. A third of the garden is in beans and peas. I’ve replanted the bare spots in the potato and corn rows, we’ll see if they do anything. The far end has tomatoes, peppers, and melons which are really beginning to take off finally.
I don’t know if you can tell in the picture, but the blackberries off to the right are covered in blossoms. We are going to have a bumper crop this year, but then again we have a bumper crop of blackberries every year!
Jim and I finally had a free minute (things have been crazy!) to try out the new BBQ.
We mostly just enjoyed the fire, but Jim did fry up a pound of bacon, with Cosmo’s supervision of course.
Yesterday I baked a loaf of sourdough rye for Jim, and just because I felt like it, I’m baking more bread this morning.
What am I going to do with it all? Beats me. I ran across an interesting recipe for a Mexican bread pudding with really unusual ingredients… I forget what it was called. Stale bread, fruit, spices, eggs, buttermilk… and onions? Oh and cheese too! Bizarre, but I might try it!
