So I had planned to make Oyster Stew and a special chocolate cake today, but we forgot to buy oysters yesterday, and I woke up to late to make the cake!
Today I did harvest the first of my cucumbers from the garden. I was picking Swiss Chard for supper, when I looked over and realized there was a giant cuke right under my nose! It was about 10" long and 2.5" in diameter. I sliced it up and served it with white vinegar, dill, salt and pepper.
Tomorrow, I need to get out to the garden early and harvest the green beans. They really should have been harvested on Saturday, but I was enjoying my family at the Celitc Fling, so they are a little over ripe. But no matter, I'll pickle them for Dilly Beans.
My dear friend, Ashley, in Kansas is going through a very dark time right now. She is carrying their fourth child (She's 33.5 wk along) and they've just learned on Friday that the little girl has anencephaly (no brain) and will likely not even live through labor and delivery. If y'all could uphold her and her husband and children in your prayers, that they might find comfort in the Lord during this difficult time.
