You'll need to visualize- updated with pics

The problem with moving is that you don't know where things are.  Take for example, the camera hookup to the computer to download pictures.  Mike put it somewhere, but who knows where and he's not here to help me find it.

So visualize 4 of those big bins from the previous fridge posting and imagine them filled to the brim with cucumbers.  Yep, that's what I did this evening, pick cucumbers.  I laughed the entire time.  So Blue Heron-- I'm beating you to the punch this time......
ha, ha,
he, he
1 cucumber for you
and 1 for me

Thank goodness the folks at work like cucumbers- I always end up with an empty tub.  We'll see what is left tomorrow and if I can give all these away.  I think I may have about 200-250 cucumbers to give away tomorrow-- no joke-- could be 300 but I was estimating lower.

I also picked some overgrown zucchini and lots of cherry tomatoes.  Oh are they good.  So visualize a square white bowl about 5 inches x 5 inches and imagine it filled with dark purple, red and orange cherry tomatoes of different shapes and sizes.  Gorgeous!!!!

Hopefully pictures are coming tomorrow when I find the camera cord!

In 2-3 weeks, we are going to have a lot of tomatoes so for those that want to come pick, please let us know.  We'll have plenty.  
We also got a heavy duty pressure canner so we'll be putting that to some good use in the next few weeks.

I'm counting down the weeks-- 8 more weeks--- in Mid September I am getting hens.  I don't really care if they only lay 1 egg per week, I am going to go to someone's farm and buy a few that are already laying eggs.  It will likely be the most money I'll ever spend per chicken- but I will have chickens in September.  I've been waiting 2 years for hens-- that's all I ever really wanted, a bigger garden and a few hens.  I have the garden- just need 3-4 hens and I will be the happiest woman on this planet.

Uh, the cord is at the farm in a box. Somewhere...

I found it-- lot of luck involved but I did. I also didn't give up until I found it.
