Yeah, yeah. So I missed a week. I don't even know what my excuse is...oh wait, I remember. We went to Cleveland last weekend. And Ohio just sucks the lifeblood right out of you. Therefore, no time or energy to take pictures or craft one of these amazing blog posts.
This weekend, as you may recall, was hot and humid. Which also sucks the lifeblood right out of you. I did manage to prune the tomatoes during the period of cloud cover Saturday afternoon. And drown some potato beetles. And do some weeding. Have I mentioned I love weeding? It is my favorite thing to do in the garden. I'm not sure what that says about my state of mind, but ripping plants out of the ground is deeply satisfying to me. I'd rather weed than plant, or harvest, or just about anything else in the garden. Except digging. I do love digging.
I also managed to pick 5 gallons (!) of beans on Saturday. And almost another 5 gallons tonight. That is a *lot* of beans. I really hope you people meant it when you said you could not get enough beans. I have officially run out of fridge space, so I need to process a bunch of carrot rejects and other things taking up fridge space right now to make room for more beans. Or maybe I just need to buy another fridge. And another chest freezer--because we went a little crazy with the strawberries this year--75 lbs of crazy.
And now, time for some pictures...
