A Happy Father’s Day to all the father’s out there. I am encouraging Norman to celebrate Father’s Day by taking the day off but he is a hard man to hold down. Maybe the kids will call and that will keep him down for part of the day.
I sewed this morning while Norman was out for his walk and after breakfast we went down to the garden and picked a meal of green beans. We have three small rows of green beans all at different stages. The one we are picking on now is the only one with beans big enough to eat, the next row has little beans on it now and the third row has just started blooming so we will have all the beans we want for quite a while as long as the animals stay out. There were no tracks today and nothing is eating them but us so maybe we have discouraged what ever it was that was after them. Oh, yes the beans I planted in the corn is blooming also so when all of these get going good we will have to do some canning. I’d love to get ten or a dozen cases of green beans this year for the family, it makes such a nice Christmas present. Another couple weeks and Hawken’s farm stand should be carrying the canning tomatoes again so we can start making the spaghetti sauce again. We need as many of those as we can make as well as some cold pack and some salsas. The berries are coming along well but not ready yet. When the raspberries and grape get ripe I make jelly for everyone also. Christmas will be rather a problem when I no longer have a farm to get the presents from. Have a great day
