Monday Morning.....

Good morning everyone.  I'm here this morning to share a bit of my life as it has been lately!  Summertime, heat, humidity, more heat and garden...  Not much time to play in my craft room, but come by tomorrow as it is the monthly Heartfelt Creations Alumni Design Team Blog Hop!

I have been working so hard in the yard and garden and trying to handle the produce coming out of the garden and the heat and humidity and mosquitoes have been very hard to deal with!  I'm an "old" broad and these three things are very difficult as I'm trying to pick produce from the garden.


I'm very grateful for the bountiful harvest this year!  These will be wonderful this winter in soup and as a side dish as well.  These beans are an heirloom bean and each year I save my own seed as it is difficult to find the seeds to buy.  The name is "Turkey Craw".  Don't you think that is an unusual name?  Wonder how they came up with that?  Anyway, I may whine a lot, but I'm always grateful for a good harvest and the ability to have seed to save for next year!

Now the next couple of weeks will be the clean up time for my garden spot.  I will pull plants that are no longer producing and clean the space for next year. A cool breeze would be nice!

Ah Magpie a great God blessed bounty of Turkey Craw, I do love that name it makes me chuckle well done on your pretty healthy jars for winter, we are in winter down here and I am busy in garden too praying and planting new roses, have three large rose beds, love my roses. Happy weeding, we have crops full of them here, just different varieties but same curse indeed,
Pray you keep safe as you garden, that is one thing pray about, Lord, please keep me from falls, and yes, was saved by those prayers twice just today., I know, rather clumsy I am!! But am very thankful.

Lots of wonderful jars of beans, Glenda! I am with you on the humidity and mosquitoes, don't have any of the mud! Have a wonderful Monday and happy crafting!

Now I know you are a Super Woman! Battling this heat and humidity is bad enough, but when you add in mosquitoes and a touch of age will that's just too much. However, you do have a Beautiful gift from all that work I must say.
Be sure to take some time to breathe girl........ the old plants won't know any different.

You're very productive and it's a lot of work, but it makes you feel good in the end, doesn't it? After all the aches and pains are gone, that is. You have a lovely home, Glenda. I'm so looking forward to becoming a full time homemaker!

I can relate to this for sure but our harvest hasn't been as plentiful as usual. The deer reeked havoc on our garden this year and ate the leaves off just about everything but especially my beans and peppers. But your beans look wonderful. We coud use a cool breeze too with less humidity. I put a few blueberries in the freezer to have during the winter but so far that's about the only thing I have in there. Hope you have a wonderful week!

YUMMY! These look fabulous Glenda! I know how much work home canning can be (starting with the heat, bugs and back ache) but Oh! How good these are going to taste when it snowing & blowing come winter. I agree with the other ladies ... your home looks lovely! Thanks for sharing a peek into the World of Glenda!! HUGS and try to stay cool ... it's a scorcher this week!

Just know I am jealous. My Mom grew a garden every year. I remember eating tomatoes off the vine and pulling radishes from the ground and washing them off with a hose. Fruit and veggies smelled and tasted like they were supposed to. It's too hot in Phoenix, AZ to have a summer garden, so enjoy your bounty.

Your beans look delicious! My Mom used to have some with that name and she said they were called that because they were found in a turkey's craw and were saved and planted in the spring. I don't have any of those seeds (too young to care about stuff like that back then) but I would love to have them now. I think we all should save all the heirloom seeds we possibly can, and I do try to now. I don't can a lot of stuff but I am trying to teach my granddaughters on how to can and preserve because homegrown and home canned taste so much better.
