Morning, Cool Shadows, then Fading Light—-Tuesday, July 3, 2018

Gradually my yard is changing into different colors,

White, Yellow, red, pink, orange

 

I’ve been weeding the pinto bean field,  It’s a yearly chore that occurs daily until the pinto beans shoot feelers.

 

We go early, early until it’s time to change water, then come back into the ate, late in the day when it cools down…the corn and the cockleburs and the pigweed must be removed

Each one of those plants makes a seed the same size as the pinto bean.  If you have lots of trash seeds going in with the pinto beans the Beanery will dock you (make you pay a large fee) to clean out the seeds.

Therefore we always work diligently to get as many seeds/plants out of the field before the vines set.

Terry is doing better.  Better is a good thing.

  1. I’m happy to hear that Terry is doing better — I hope he continues to improve. Weeding the pinto beans is hard work, but I’m glad you can get it done in the cooler parts of the day.

  2. That is a fast recovery, even if just a partial recovery. I thought mine was fast, but it took several days before I noticed any slight improvement. Well, mine is different of course.
