I was supposed to work today but my boss got in last night and I did not have to go in. Yeah! Today will definitely be a catch up day.
Luke is in for the weekend so he helped his dad do all of the mowing chores. I headed to the lower garden where the fillet beans were waiting to be picked. They were loaded. It took two hours just to pick the row and it was not even a full row. Prolific little buggers, those beans! Over a bushel! I am not a fan of frozen green beans but plan to freeze a few to see how they taste when steamed or sauteed.
Luke started plowing the lower pasture to get it ready to plant millet later this week. We are late getting it in but hope that we will still get some grazing from it. Doug plowed the green beans, snow peas and the corn that didn't germinate up. Tomorrow we will replant the corn and put in some late beans, squash and crowder peas.
We have already harvested more from our garden this year that the whole summer last year. Last year was a very bad year and so I am trying to replenish the freezers and pantry that have become almost barren.
