Summer Has Its Rewards

I drove home after Tuesday night’s Making It Grow! show with a fireworks display nearly the whole hour and intermittent windshield wiping. At home, the gauge had two-tenths of water. It was enough to wet the grass, but not enough to get a chorus from Old Hopeful, our resident weather commentator tree frog. I checked the beans before leaving yesterday, and the slightly cooler temperatures had left some pods set on the Alabama “hot weather producer” pole beans. I had harvested several dozen I left on the vines for seeds and have them ready to plant this weekend.

Oh, summer has its rewards. The peaches from McLeod’s Farms I kept in the refrigerator have finally ripened and make the perfect dessert or quick breakfast. I remember the first time I ate a peach with the skin on it was at summer camp in North Carolina when they took us to Asheville for the crafts fair. We washed it under a spigot and leaned over to eat it so the juice wouldn’t get on our Sunday dress-white shorts and shirts.

The Clemson Spineless okra planted last week germinated pretty good but there are a few gaps. There is an area where the seeds spilled, but I can transplant those to fill in the holes. Even okra and cotton, famous hot weather lovers, don’t like temperatures over 95 so it’s plenty warm for those little seedlings to take off and grow fast.
