More rain equals more mud

We got more rain last night and here at our place that equates to more mud, everywhere. The garden was very soft today but there is stuff to pick regardless. Finished one lil patch of corn and got it in the freezer. The cukes are about done for the season so there were only a few of them. I did pick more young zucchini to mix with the cukes to make bread and butter pickles. When they are done you cant tell the difference. Think tomorrow is the day to deal with the tomatillos. The plan for them is salsa of some sort
Both my boys were here today and the youngest with his girlfriend so we had roast chicken for supper. Well really 2 of em. We just fixed veggies from the garden to go along with the chicken. The only thing on the table that was not home grown was the wild rice. That makes for a very satisfying meal.
During our plunders in the garden today I noticed some really pretty flowers in the grass. I was so happy to find it was passion fruit vines. There are bunches of them in our field, so the guys have been ordered, No Bush hogging that area. Now I'm thinking jelly, or maybe some juice. Just never know around here. So till next time, blessings from the McGuire homestead.
