We got more rain, and mud

It has rained most all day, not really heavy rain but enough to soak you thru if you happen to go out. I had to take my buddy Gene to therapy today so I didn't plan much. He has been stuck at home since last week and just needed some different walls to look at, so he had his wife bring him here as she was going to orientation for a job. So he got to hang out and plunder around with me here on the place today. Then we went to his therapy and by the end of the day he was exhausted and so was I. After supper we went to the garden in the mud and picked cucumbers. Got enough to make 5 more quarts of kosher dill pickles. Those things need to be picked every other day so they don't get too big. Tomorrow we will be picking the pink eye purple hull peas again and shelling those to can. We have some of them for supper tonight and they are so so good. Am looking forward to lots of good peas and cornbread suppers this winter.
Not much else happening here on the farm today. So till next time, blessings from the McGuire homestead.

Your garden is a great inspiration. Mine is not so good this year, but it is still a help. :) Hoping for a good tomato harvest. So far none are ripe--kind of late but that's due to the wedding I just didn't get them transplanted on time.
