... And getting caught in the rain...

We were out picking limas when a big storm came up and caught us! DH sent me inside with the limas that were already picked, and he stayed out in the rain to keep picking.

Here's how much came in with me. about 1/4 to a 1/2 the wash basin full.

Here's DH as he came in from picking. He had just dumped the rest that he had picked into the bucket. The crazed look on his face was him laughing at the storm that he had made it!

Now he's trying to be serious. HA HA HA!!!!!

Here's all the green beans that we got. We planted heirloom beans this year, only 2 packets worth, not realizing that they don't reproduce after picking. So this is all we got this year. But next year we'll plant a whole bunch more!!!

Yay! We finally have a computer!

Yay! So we finally had the money to get a computer. It's not the greatest, but it will work for what we need it to do right now. So now I can update more often. We don't have internet at home yet, and probably won't for a while, but I can get on several wifi hotspots close to home. So I know everyone's been wanting to see how the garden's been doing, so here's some pictures (we got a new camera about a month ago too)!

Lots of green beans!!!! They're getting ready for the first picking!
The limas are starting to get beans in them. I can't wait!

There are so many tomatoes out there... now if they would only turn red!!!

The peppers are so big! and I'm amazed at how many can be on such a little plant! This is one side of the plant and the other picture is the other side.

This pepper is huge! I'm not sure I could palm it!
Well that's all for now, but rest assured now that I have a computer at my disposal there will be much more often posts, with plenty of pictures!!!!
