We put up five quarts of squash today, total of 70 quarts in the freezer so far.
Mama and I shelled purple hull peas also known as black eyed peas. I truly love shelling peas.
Gordon eats almost no vegetables, but fried squash is one of the veggies he will eat. We will be freezing much more of this!
Unc and Mr. Wardell set up a trot line on one of the ponds this week. They have gotten four small catfish so far that we sent home for Mr. Wardell to enjoy.
The largest one so far has been a pound. I love that size of catfish, baked or fried whole (without the head and guts, of course).
My mouth is watering for catfish fresh from our pond. At least we know our home grown catfish is not contaminated with anything!
The trot line has also caught three turtles that have now been removed from the pond.
It seems we are a couple of weeks ahead of last year's garden.
Probably because of the little afternoon rain showers we have been getting for a few weeks.
Everything is so lush and green right now.
Pretty soon we will be praying for NO rain. Cotton plants like hot dry weather after a certain point.
