Makes a difference don't cha know?
Ok that's as philosophic as this Madre gets!
Reaping is starting but I want green beans dang it.
Course I won't like them when it's 90' and I'm squatting picking or sweating snapping or etc.
But I want green beans!
I have a friend who pulls the whole plant, sticks it in wheelbarrow and trucks it to the shade to pick off beans and trash the plant. He says life's too short to be miserable. Beans have 1 shot to ripen. Different strokes, different folks!
Last night we had a gully washer come through with high winds, thunder, lightening and loss of electricity in other areas.
Mouse had to get close to me to avoid the giant puddles forming. The winds had changed and his dry area wasn't not dry.
I ran to the barn between lightening strikes to feed and check critters. I stayed after till I caught a break in the sideways rain. It cracked and grumbled for hours with rain gently falling later on.
Hogs will love the puddles tonight when I turn them out to play while I clean the pens.
I hope LN is enjoying camp. The storm went through there as well but I don't know how bad. They are not supposed to use their phones at all or even bring them. Most bring them but turn them off and hide them till bus ride back. Then they text us and let us know where they are and that they are starved and tired. A sign of a successful camp.
