However, this trip I got to see him actually rob the bees, which was fun—but I’ll write more on that later.
By the time I got home it was already hot, and I still had beans that needed to be picked. The first row I tackled was planted in bunch beans, the kind that grow close to the ground, and they aren’t much fun to pick when it’s hot.
I also picked another large bucket full of tomatoes and canned more juice while I cooked supper.
After we ate, Robin and I picked goose beans until dark. Goose beans are great big beans, much easier to pick and string than the ones I gathered this morning. They are a good meaty heirloom variety.
We’ve been promising customers at farmers’ market that beans would be here soon, and they finally are, thanks to some good rains and a little bit cooler temperatures.
