The weather here has been hot in the daytime but nicely cool at night. This means that if I can get going early enough in the morning, I can pick the beans and cucumbers before the sun moves across the yard.
Above is this morning’s harvest – lots of green beans, cucumbers, and my first peppers. I’m growing paste tomatoes this year, but I confess that I don’t like sticking my arm into the sticky tomato bushes, so the spouse does that for me. I just wash the tomatoes and freeze them whole, and when I need them, I can thaw them and the skins slip right off. Then I chop them and add them to dishes.
This week I am doing some utilitarian sewing chores. I hemmed a new tablecloth, hemmed A’s skirt, and am now hemming M’s pants:
I am a horrible procrastinator, but I think I have improved over the years. I used to put off school papers or studying for a test until the last minute. When I do get around to a sewing chore like this that someone has requested, it never is as lengthy a chore as I think, and I am usually done with it in record time. It occurs to me that right now I am playing around on the computer instead of sewing the hems, so I guess I’d better go to the sewing machine.
