One problem solved and here comes another one. One of the burners of our stove started acting up. The stove is ONLY () 34 years old but I am used to it and I don’t want a new one. So… in comes the resident handyman with tools and an old cord from a waffle iron. That man is GOOD!!!! A 2 hour job and it is as good as new!! I am very thankful and happy. It is the burner I always use for frying things and canning. It would only get really hot once in awhile. I hope I get another 34 years out of that stove. Hmmmmm … that would make me 108 years old. Yup, that should do it.
Last night we had a great rain. We sure appreciate it. The Island was very dry. So far we have had no problem with our well so we were lucky. Right now the rain stopped but it is cool and dreary outside.
I just picked a few more beans and I think there will not be many more. The ones that are still coming are way up and we need a ladder to get to them. There is still a lot of them on the stalks but they are too big already so we will use them for dried bean soup and chilli in the winter. Half of the beans are Appaloosa beans which are not good to cook fresh but are great as dried beans.
While I was out there I took a picture of on of our Dahlias. These ones are as big as a dinner plate. Very pretty but not good in a Vase.
That’s it for today.
