Yard-long (almost) green beans flowers and babies.
Huh? By now you should be used to my sense of reality and humor so....to most this The Fourth of July, meaning a celebration of becoming our own Nation. But, I know that I have readers in other parts of the world so today might just be 07-04-13 or for those few in the Far East, it is actually July 5th so when I give a "shout out" it is usually to all.
To some, it is raining :-( but to me "It is raining!" :-) The rain from yesterday and last night really did not penetrate much, but what I see out there now and with what I see on the radar, my garden finally has something to drink!
I was out earlier this morning and happy to see my ripening (finally) tomatoes, picked more Japanese Cucumbers, some yard-long beans, which are actually only 20-24" but yard-long has a better sound to it and some yellow squash.
The picture is of yard-long bean flowers and the one actually shows some baby beans starting to emerge. Here's a tip they gave me a few years ago. Even though they start out slow, PICK the first beans they produce so they know you appreciate them. That way they will feel better about producing more. Deb and Mommy made fun of me when I came in with just a few last week, but now the flowers are starting to pop!
While I am writing this, one of our cats Holly is trying to understand why I put a box on one of her resting places that has magazines in it end on end. In the process her paws slipped between the magazines and she is now laying there with her belly on the tops of the magazines while her legs are down in between them. She chose to accept that for a few minutes but has now decided that it is just not natural, so off she goes.
REMEMBER GARDEN CLUB MEETING TOMORROW!
