The yellow wax beans are tapering off to the point I think I’ll be composting the plants in the next week or two. The Colorado River green beans are in full flourish, so I’ll be making dilly beans tomorrow or the next day. Pickling cucumbers continue to produce four or more big fruits every couple of weeks, and I pulled half the red onions to use in salsa and pickles this week. I’m grateful I got the kitchen cleaned up and the canning jars sorted on the counter today, so tomorrow I can get back to work.
I’ve been on the COPD inhaler for only three days, and already I feel worse! Assuming it’s a necessary phase to pass through to feeling better. After working hard last week until my back hurt too badly to do anything more, then relaxing all weekend, an arduous day Monday, and not being able to post pictures yesterday…. I feel like I’ve been ‘off’ for a long time. I’m grateful I can afford to upgrade to get more space on here (even though I’m still not sure that’s the issue) so I can get back to work sharing the joyful practice of gratitude.
