Fifth Week of Summer Break

Still lots of garden stuff this week.  We dug potatoes.  Boys were good little potato pickers.  Muddy bath water that night but that’s a sign of a good summer day for country boys.

Picked and put up corn.  Homestyle cream style is our favorite.  Boys also did a fair job shucking corn.  They love corn so we are making sure we put up plenty.

We didnt have library program this week so we did an experiment of our own.  We did “little explosions”.  Basically dropped dropper fulls of colored vinegar on a plate of baking soda.  It was a hit.

The 4th is big for us because the last 8 years, hubby has done our community show.  Its nothing professional, just small town USA at it’s finest.  We put a peanut butter jar up at THE store (tiny gas station) and community donates to THEIR show.  We take money to a generous supplier who gives us a deal to stretch our money.   People come and sit on tailgates and enjoy.   Show lasts about 15 minutes.  I’m proud of my hubbys hard work and planning,  he does a great job.  He has a few volunteers of fellow volunteer firefighters but basically on the 4th we don’t see too much of him.

But the hard work pays off.  Great crowd and great donations so I think others agree,
The goods.

Now were recovered and back to gardening.  These pintos won’t shell themselves.   However luckily I can do that job indoors, as it appears summer is here.
