Succotash Tuesday

Yeah, It's SUCCOTASH TIME! I love succotash because it is a hodgepodge of anything that floats your boat.

Little mister is surviving the pox (barely), he has it much worse than Big Mister had. I ended up giving him 4 soda baths yesterday and ended up in the tub for the last one since he was so tired from crying. I won't share a picture since the mental picture is bad enough. I did however wear undergarments if that makes it better.

I succeeded in planting 21 roma tomatoe plants and 12 or 14 pepper plants yesterday. I managed to weed most of the garden as well. I am looking forward to picking strawberries in a week or two. My pea's are blossomed now and am guessing 1-2 weeks more they will be ready. I planted 240 ft first planting and another 120 ft a month later for a larger crop. I am so elated at my beets, I love them in any form and this is the 4rth year planting them and for the first time they came up, all 260 ft of them. The trick is to soak the seeds in water overnight same as morning glory seeds.

I had one rose bush away from all the rest of my bushes, and I am not sure but I think that it got lonely because he just wasn't sprouting at all. I felt so sorry for him and made a spot for him with all the girls in the rose garden. I am sure he be growing an flirting away now!

I am making my homemade cream of mushroom soup today and will let you all know how it turns out. I am rather excited to something new that will improve the health of our family.

My DW is home today which is why I am trying to get as much done as possible. His workplace has no power from all the storms we have had and so he is home with us today. YEAH!

I have to say the debt diet program we are doing is going super well. I am actually enjoying paying cash and not credit for eeverything. I should find out soon where and when I will start working again. You all will be the first to know.

This shall conclude my succotash for the week, I no nothing to exciting, but at least constructive. Oh, I probably didn't mention that my one sister in law is getting married on thurday and the other sister in law is expecting another baby.

God bless and have a great day!

I just love that you moved your lonely rose bush. :) How sweet and quirky of you. It's great to laugh... :) I would do the exact same thing, and I think the rose will be thriving soon. I llove roses.

Oh my word, I am in AWE of your garden. Post some pics of it!! I have a super tiny yard, and only have room for a few plants, but I'll take what I can get. You must do a ton of canning and freezing. Wow.
