I feel like we have been blessed. It rained last night and O Wise One estimates about half an inch. Not enough to end this drought but we will take all that we can get. Atleast it is a little break from the oppressive heat this morning as the clouds still linger. 

Baby Hank spent the night last night while his parents attended a birthday party for a friend in the city. This morning He and Grandpa are enjoying grits and butter biscuits with strawberry jam. Both seem pretty pacified at the moment. 

On the canning front I got another dozen jars of tomato sauce canned yesterday before Hank arrived. Today the agenda is to shell field peas to be canned as soon as Hank goes home. I don't like to can with a toddler underfoot. 

O Wise One has already picked another bucket of squash and zucchini to be dealt with and the tomatoes and okra need picking again.

Well Hank, Baby O and I are off to shell peas. Hope everyone that needed it was blessed with rain as well.

  2. We were blessed with a shower. I'm not measuring it, we still have clouds so hoping beyond hope we have more.

    Hank knows what's good to eat.

    Great canning, with all our woes, we haven't had much of a garden this year.

  3. Glad you got a little rain, at least!
    Have fun collecting your harvest!
