Here are some more pics of the Garden. There is the Corn patch behind the tire garden Beans.

You can see the Purple Hull Peas on the fence in the back. Cantaloupes in the middle and the Asparagus in the front. Hope the Asparagus will be ready to start eating next year. Takes at least three years to get old enough to eat.

Here is another tire garden of Green Beens.
Just look at the size of them peas and they are not ready yet. They will turn purple when ready. Looks good enough to eat now to me.
Jeannie and Lee did almost all of this garden because I was off working when it needed to be planted.


Today we gathered some of the corn from the garden. Got about 70 ears of corn and there is still some left to get later. Found bugs in the end of the ears. We picked most of the ones we thought had bugs. Turned out to be some kind of catapiller.

Getting Shop Started

On July 23 I think the concrete guy came and started the forms for the slab. On the 25 they came and poured the slab. Lee took the picture for me as I was busy not thinking about it. He took on of the slab after they poured it also.

July 21

The concrete guys called and said they would start my slab last Monday, and all week they have been working to get ready to pour the slab. Ive been watching the concrete guys setup my foundation forms. Ready to pour the concrete tomorrow if it is not too muddy. Rained here yesterday and last night, probably 2 or 3 inches at least. I should have about 3 weeks before the building arrives so the slab should be cured well.

Lee built a smoker and we used it to make dinner a brisket for the 4th.
Turned out good. Doris and Dawn came also. Had a nice visit.
