Had just enough

Had just enough to do today to keep from being bored. Still drying herbs and weeding various beds. Got all the grass out of the onion bed so the walking onions will have a nice place to live. Went to the big garden to look around and did get to harvest some bell peppers and broccoli. Tomatoes are blooming and setting little tomatoes but the plants seem terribly small. I will be harvesting and canning mustard and turnip greens tomorrow for sure. They are a foot tall already. Should have green beans in a few weeks and beets to can. I have waved the white flag of surrender to the potato beetles, think I lost that battle. They are still alive and fairing well. We had several rain showers today after the stifling heat and humidity. So till next time, blessings from the McGuire homestead.
