The Rain is finally here

                                       Roses Blooming 

       Every afternoon  the rain storms have been firing up because of the heat.   The peas are just about done in the garden and the beans have been so prolific, that I have already put 3 quarts up, and need to do more.     The tomatoes are starting to produce and I can not wait.  We have three heirloom varieties this year.   Bradley,  which is good for canning and sauces,   Black Krim,  and Duetch Fleiss.   They are all growing wonderfully and hopefully no horned worms to eat the leaves anytime soon.

         I have been working on getting some projects done,  I have organized all the quilting fabric again,  and have started getting all the directions for the quilts together with the fabric.   I have also been working on quilling so cards so that they are caught up and done.   I am also going to do some art work with the quilling.  
    The Mimosa trees have been in bloom this week,  the blooms are so dainty  and the leaves curl up when you touch them.

                   The beans and tomatillos growing in the garden.  Can not wait to make some salsa verde with the tomatillos.  They have had lots of blooms on them  so hopefully a big crop. 

                                  Well,  that's all the news from the south,  
                              Happy" farming" to all the farm girl sisters out there.
                              See you next week. down on the farm.
