Green beans , Tomatoes ....................................

Yesterday afternoon , Hubby and I rode over to my Mom's to eat supper with her. Afterwards we ventured out to her garden to check-out the sunflowers. I gave her a few seeds from my mammoth sunflowers I grew last year , her sunflowers are around 7-8 ft tall. I'm looking forward to seeing them bloom.

She has running okra planted this year , this is the first time she's ever grown this. My uncle gave us seeds , I haven't planted mine , but I'm curious to see what Mom's look like when it fruits.

Her tomatoes did great this year .......................

she's so proud of these beauties.

When we left Mom's I realized that I had forgot my camera , so we turned around and went back to get the camera. On the way back I saw the most gorgeous sunset , the sun was going down behind a grove of trees , it was such a beautiful bright shade of pink. I wish I would have had my camera to take a pic. I miss seeing the sunsets , since the trees have leaves , I don't have nice views like I did in the winter.

My Mom and I bought some green beans from a local farmer , so I started snapping beans last night. Today I'm canning those wonderful beans. I have green beans growing , but I don't grow as many as we like to can for the winter months.

This morning when I went to the chicken coop , I found Sneaky Snake lounging up top. I tried to get him down to remove him , but he was determined that he wasn't leaving , so DH had to get rid of him.

Who's that in the garden (LOL) !

Hope everyone is having a good week.

Love those tomatoes, beautiful red color. Green beans are always a good thing to have during the winter months, reminds me of summer when there's a blizzard outside.
