We have had rain….lots of rain…rain early in the week and then rain Friday as I was trying to take these photos and then the bottom fell out giving us two inches Friday and Saturday and more on Sunday night….

fIRST IS A SHOT OF MY BALE BUTTER BEANS…. they are making good progress. I finally have a row that has come up in the garden as well as some corn….the wire is to keep the birds from pulling them up…the garden did not have benefit of the wire and is one reason I think that crops have not come up well in the garden….I put the wire up there to keep the dogs from jumping on them but it helped with the birds….
