Guess what I'm doing on the ranch today .......
When we got home from South Dakota last Wednesday this is what I found.... Peaches, peaches, peaches !
My goodness how they grew in only 1 week. There is another big pan full inside the house. Since they are already pretty ripe, I'm going to freeze them for pies, cobblers, smoothies and ice cream.
I think if I were to can them they would be too mushy.
This little ole tree is about to break from all the peaches.................and
.............this one only has 5 on it.
The buds froze last March....we had nice warm weather, then a week of freezing cold came through.
Why it got this tree and not the other.... is anybody's guess.
My black eyed peas are coming on and I should be able to pick at the end of the week. I'll be canning these. In the front is okra, then green beans, then black eyes.
I have another row of black eyes way over on the other side of the garden. I split them up this year because they tend to spread and grow together....and I'm afraid to get in there and pick them....
snakes love shady wet places !
Since Ranchman killed a baby copperhead last week in the back yard, I'll have to be extra careful in the garden. I had just been mowing grass where he found it !
Thank you once again Lord Jesus for watching out for me.

I'm making a baby shower memory quilt.
The guests that came to the shower signed their name on a star....I will applique those on.
They do these kind of memory quilts at weddings....so I thought ....why not a baby shower ?
I'm off to put up peaches !
Have a beautiful day and God bless you.
