We had rain and thunder storms off and on yesterday, but today (so far) it feel all warm and sunny.
Today I must go out and weed! All this lovely wet weather has brought on bloom’s, weeds and the feeling of Fall.
The pinto beans are starting to get ripe. The yellow leaves are an indication. We will still keep watering them, as the beans in the pods need to fill out and swell the pods. Harvest looks like sometimes in September. But only time will tell.
This is NOT sweet corn, but the corn you have for corn meal, cereal, and animal food.
Although, we are just starting the month of August the days feels more like September here. We are seeing weeds maturing like they usually do in September, and other weeds, which only start to grow the last part of August in full maturity.

It makes Terry and I wonder if we are going to have a early fall. Although, we could have a early freeze and then a long warmish fall, before winter actually sets in.
I guess only time will tell. Until then I’m going to enjoy every bit of summer we have left!
