The glory and wonder of beans is that there are so many kinds that you can have them growing pretty much year round in a lot of climates. Even in the cold.

I like those Alaskan peas. They grow first in the year, even during frost. In fact, a light frost makes them as sweet as candy.

I generally have about 5-6 bushes of them, but they never make it into the house. I pick them in the garden and eat them there raw as a treat. Like candy. Mmmm.

After a limping start and growing/learning pains, my garden is finally taking off. Too late for a decent bean harvest, alas.

Wondering if it's too late to just replant the pole beans... hmm....

(Most) Beans like the heat! Peas don't.

Okay, I lied. Fava beans don't. But bush beans and pole beans usually do, especially older varieties.

My beans are going crazy!

You have enough time!

Not sure about the tomatoes yet, I either will be inspired to buy them today, or not at all this season. My herb patch is doing great, and the lemon thyme in the Loghenge Sink is filling out beautifully.

The joys of perennial gardening are infinite.

I have no discipline for yard work. It is tedious and I am not getting paid for it. Yuck.

But today I have to get some done or my neighborhood may run us off.

I've bounced back into a generally content state of mind. Also of note is I've completely stopped use of nonprescription drugs.

Who the hell is going to pay $8,000 for a new, stock, semi-auto 5.56 rifle?

Even if you had $8k, who wants to lug around a 17 lb, short range, semi?
