I’ve dumped most of the images on this blog that were posted in the distant past (4 years ago and beyond) and a few from the recent past, and I think I’ll be good to go for a while. The new blog is fun to put together and look at and I appreciate everyone who’s followed it.
It’s funny how I (all of us?) write the same thing over and over. I felt weird realizing that, then I thought it’s probably comforting not just to write about beans every year but for people to read about beans every year, especially given the instability of our world in these times.
On that note, the beans are doing OK. They love the hot days (Bear and I hate them) and warm(ish) nights. Some of them aren’t going to get to any decent size this summer but it’s OK. I decided that naming them might be laying too much of a burden on them so for now they’re just beans, though only time will tell if they will assume their identities. A couple that I planted from seeds are growing with great passion and enthusiasm. The only bean from spring who — I mean that — is doing really well is Tu Fu though Pearl Buck is doing pretty well and is the only one so far to (almost) bloom. Oh well. I guess they have names after all…
And for anyone who wants to know…your writing doesn’t take up any appreciable space on your blog. It’s the photos which probably everyone knew but me 😉 .
