The mighty warriors have been working on fine tuning their torches. They also strung and broke my green beans. I went out to pick the cucumbers and tomatoes and found my beans were ready to pick. I only picked a bucket for now but Monday will have me picking alot and getting them ready to can. Each one of the boys did a load of laundry in the washtubs this morning and I did a load of towels. They cleaned their room and made their beds and washed their breakfast dishes. We went to CiCi's Pizza for lunch and now are back home getting ready to do afternoon chores. Its warm but cloudy so a good outdoor day. Tomorrow is suppose to be hot and muggy. I have been asked to do a post on my washday using our non electric (handcrank) wringer. I am getting some links together and will try to post tomorrow evening. The mighty warriors and I had a really good supper last night. Salmon patties, fresh corn on the cob,mashed potatoes, rolls, cucumbers and tomatoes right out of the garden and fresh cantaloupe. Tonight we are having some of our green beans with new potatoes, corn on the cob, cucumbers, tomatoes, baked chicken breasts, biscuits and watermelon. Hopefully Woody and Zack will get a little meat on their bones. I'm sorry there hasn't been any Hidden Haven stories or homesteading news but its been rather busy. I will get back on track in the next few days. Have a blessed weekend.
