Here’s a picture of the fog on the ground when driving into the lake to go fishing.
This part of my post is for Jambaloney over at Framboise Manor. Bulldog Man and I went fishing over the weekend, down at Lake of the Arbuckles. Both Bulldog Man and I caught fish; this was the only one that was legal in size (actually above and beyond size). A 17 inch, 4+pound Large Mouth Bass and I caught it.
I’ll have you know Bulldog Man came over to this spot, fished for a little while, didn’t get any bites, and moved on to the next spot on the lake. I moved into the area he just left, and within 3 minutes, I caught this beautiful Large Mouth Bass. Bulldog Man was so upset, he threatened to steal my crank bait……..this could have been his catch, but he left the area--too bad……so sad………………~HA~……..the fish was cleaned, placed in a food saver bag. and frozen for eating later. I promise to share a filet from this fish with Bulldog Man when it’s cooked up.
I found this old steamer for $4.33 cents at an estate sale in town and snatched it up. It will work great over a camp fire, or stove, for steaming vegetables and fish (notice I’m mentioning fish again….just to aggravate Bulldog Man a little more).
Here’s a picture of one of my pots of corn, it’s doing okay…..not as well as expected with this heat, and the winds from the west we’ve been dealing with. I need to tell my FIL to stop sending the winds from New Mexico to Oklahoma; he just loves sharing the weather with us!
My green peppers are doing pretty good for themselves. Here’s a few pictures of the peppers growing upside down (this is normal for this particular pepper plant).
I had to take this picture of this tiny little baby cucumber and share it with y’all. I have approximately 65 of these little babies. Here’s hoping for some nice homemade pickles soon.
Two days ago, I planted Cherokee Trail of Tears seeds I received from SciFiChick last spring and they’re starting to pop out of the ground. Looking good!!! Bulldog Man will be building me another trellis for the beans to grow upward.
Here’s a look at some watermelon and pumpkin seeds poking through the soil. I made sure to limit their space because I don’t want them growing all over the place.
Bulldog Man and I picked another large bowl of green beans. We thought this would be the last. When looking through the vines we have plenty more small beans still growing, along with blossoms. It looks like we will get maybe 4 to 5 more harvests, before pulling the vines up, and replanting the area with Lincoln Peas.
Our little buddy, Beans. came out to help in the garden and decided it’s too darn hot outside and turned around to head back for the door. He wanted inside where it’s much cooler. Poor little guy has been dealing with allergy issues with his ears and paws. We’ve taken him to the Vet, received antibiotics, special sprays for his ears and paws, and he’s been on Benadryl and is feeling much better.
Blogger friends have any of your pets suffered from allergy issues?
