Nothing Better

I kicked off the coffee early this morning and then stepped down to the garden to see if anything had grown overnight. 
As it turns out, I noticed that something had grown several inches after the rain yesterday -- the weeds.
The morning was still cool and a little mist hung in the air like a vail.  I pulled weeds from around the okra, squash, tomatoes, and peppers. I then stepped over to the blueberries and snagged a few that had ripened overnight. 
I've remained on top of my weeding duties this summer and so it didn't take long to get things in order.
I pulled my pocket knife out and cut enough okra and squash for a mess. Our tomatoes aren't ripe yet, but Jilda picked up some fresh ones today when she went to the produce market.
Tonight we had fried squash/okra, new potatoes, tomatoes, jalapeno peppers, and hot buttered cornbread.
Not sure it's possible to have anything better.

  2. My family and I aren't really gardeners, but I wish we were. Now with our new neighbors, I think any attempt at a vegetable garden would look awful next to theirs. Though we do have a nice little blueberry bush that has been in our yard since we moved in.

  3. Our garden is not as far along as yours...it will be end of July or Aug before tomatoes are ready! Jack loves okra and so do I...that dinner sounds like it was very yummy!

  5. We had a long wet spring so gardens are running late - but the weeds are really phenomenal. I was gone for a week and it looks like a jungle out there.

  6. Sounds like a "nothing could be better" kind of morning.

    Good for you - and have a good weekend. ...Marsha
