WooHoo.....3 1/2 inches of rain!

Went down to the garden this morning to try to see what needed to be done in between the rains. Brother had already cut the okra this morning and most of it was too big to use because we had hadn't cut it since Saturday. With the rains, more will be ready tomorrow, but it is supposed to rain again tomorrow, so we may miss that cutting as well. I tried to pick peas, but kept bogging down and losing my balance, so I gave up. There are blooms all over the peas since the rains yesterday, so we still may get a lot of peas. Got very few tomatoes. They aren't putting on any new ones. I am loving all the rain, but I sure do get lazy and sleep a lot. And.....I spend way too much time playing Bejeweled Blitz on the computer. It drives me crazy! I don't even know why I put this frog graphic on here. I hate frogs!!!! And.....I must be ADD judging by the way this post is all over the place!!!!:)

Yeah, I have had some problems with the okra getting too tough. I put in some this year I had never tried before...supposed to grow up to 8" without getting tough..and dat's a lie! Anting over 3" it gets stringy. So I am cutting it at 2 1/2 to 3 has a good flavor but just doesn't bear as much as the stuff I used to get. This is the last and only year for this variety. SHoulda known. I ordered the seed from a seed company up north. It is a 63 day type and I wuz in a hurry for my fresh year I'll just wait
