If you don't like the taste send them over here, our entire bean crop
crapped out early in the spring. Something ate them all. I guess we will
try an autumn crop and will start them soon.

Our climate often gives us another crop but it is all dependent on Ma
Nature.

George, the early riser in this house, I think I hear snoring from the
master bedroom and the dawg has already had her breakfast and meds and
is already snoozing on the office couch. Routine things for old people
and old dawgs

how do you do them? i pretty much used the same
method i did for the cucumbers.

wash/rinse, make brine, pour brine over cut up
beans, process.

dunno how crunchy they will be, but i recall the
dilly beans someone gave to me were pretty good.

if i would replant every few weeks i could be in
beans all season until the frosts come. i just don't
usually have the space or am too busy with projects
by mid-summer to really push production.

we have about a month or month and a half before
the first frosts return. i could try to sneak in
some peas - but it won't happen. i'm way too busy
trying to get other things done.

Mom wakes up before i do, has her coffee, knits
and watches the weather channel. i wake up sometime
around when the sun comes in the patio door or even
earlier. i used to be a night-owl, but i've tried
to shift my sleep schedule earlier so i can get out
in the morning while it is still cool outside.

routine is good, i'm a big fan of the simple
life...

I will look in my library of canning and cooking books, some very old.
I'm old too so I don't remember a lot of things that we do, therefore a
library of the above.

I used to work shift work in a chemical plant, ran the boilers and water
treatment there for sixteen years. I learned early on to go to sleep
early and wake up to the alarm clock. Learned that from my Dad, he
worked shift for over forty years. That shift work and several years in
the USN taught me to not wait for the alarm clock. Then I went into
management at several companies and got used to getting up to get ready
to go to work and do it early.

Went in the Navy at 17, right out of high school and worked for 47 years
after getting out. We had a lot of fun as we worked overseas for many
years. Then I started my own business and ran that for about fifteen
years off and on. I get anxious when I don't have anything to do. G

hardly ever look it up again.

i've worked for the family company and that was
construction/helper/truck driver/gopher/mover
of crap/cleanup/warehouse help/answer the phones/
etc, but once i got away from that and went to
college i worked through college, but had flex
time as long as the work got done. as i worked
and lived in the same building i was always on
call. after i finished my degree i worked
full time and kept more or less daytime hours
but i liked being a night owl when a bigger
project would come up (more quiet at night)
and then for the last six years before i quit
full-time work i was on 24hr call but kept
a 10-6pm schedule most of the time except
when i needed to get a bigger project done.

i am still not a morning person, but i can
function if i have to. i just don't like a
lot of noise or chatter until i'm more awake.

with as much gardens as we've got here there's never
a shortage of stuff to do. in the summer i'm hoping
for a rainy day or two at least once a week so i get
a break of some sort. doesn't always work out that
ways. the past few weeks it has. nice to not have to
spend time watering.

the current project was delayed by rain again, but i
hope to make more progress this morning. have to get
out early as it will be too hot later today.

ok, well, have fun

My favorite job was being a gunsmith, did that from a home shop back
when I was working shift in the chemical plant. Started it to keep my
Dad busy when he retired from the refinery. My whole family, kids and
wife, helped out. Wife brought us lunch, kids swept the shop and washed
the windows for money. None of us ever believed in just giving kids
money for doing nothing but being a kid. Didn't seem to hurt them, both
are in their mid-fifties and have good paying jobs. So I did that when
my grands lived nearby. I really liked gunsmithing but it didn't pay a
lot so turned it over to my Dad when we worked overseas.

When I nearly died some years ago I gave my safety consulting business
to a very good friend in the safety business and worked for me part
time. He called me yesterday, at age 67 he is retiring and sold the
business for a hefty amount of bucks. Offered to send me half but I
don't need the money as we both have small pensions and Social Security
plus we were always squirreling away money at our credit union. He
worked harder than I did. G

Now we garden, take care of the grands and great grands when we can get
them. I go to the library weekly, buy the groceries weekly, wife mows,
works the stoop labor in the gardens, works the gardens at her church,
teaches elderly ladies and young kids how to paint in any type and gets
paid for the last two. Me, I read a lot of science fiction, nap with the
dog, do most of the cooking, and whatever else I can do to keep us
going. My wife's mother lived to be over 100 years, just almost 101 and
I expect my lovely wife will live at least that long if not longer. It
doesn't get much better than this live for a Texas boy. I'm having a lot
of health problems at this time but, whatever happens will happen and
it's okay with me.

George
