Peas, peas, and more peas. Faye picked enough to fill a 5 gallon bucket and there are still more to be picked. And there are still plenty of weeds. Lee ran his tiller between the rows of beans and sweet potatoes to plow them under and Ann pulled weeds as tall as the tomato plants by hand. The tomatoes are starting to show color and cucumbers should be ready for picking on July 30 in addition to summer squash and more peas. The peas and yellow and pattypan squash picked this week were donated to Swannanoa Valley Christian Ministries.
The current volunteer situation seems similar to professional football injuries. Bob is out for the rest of the season because he needed a hip replacement and I hurt my back last week and cannot rake, hoe or plow. However, the Lord does provide and I received a call this week about a new and exciting volunteer possibility that could happen next month.
