Rain, rain and rain. Yes, we did need rain, and yes, it has been nice. But do we need the storms, too? We have had 1.25 inches as of Tuesday, April 26, at 7 p.m. Let's hope that the tornado warning does not come to pass.
We had a wonderful Easter with lots of visiting family. We had family from Justin, Lewisville, Grand Prairie and Clarksville. We had a lot of food, fishing and laughs, too. We hope that your weekend was full of family and love as well. We went to a beautiful sunrise service. I know there were several such morning services around the area; we hope you were able to attend one.
Our garden is really flourishing with this rain. We are now digging up new potatoes, and the beets are close to the right size for beet pickles. Tom says this is his best garden in a while. Let's hope so, for it is our food for the winter! Our freezer needs to be filled, and I am low on home-canned green beans. By the way, does anyone have a recipe for green beans cooked on the grill? I’m also looking for some recipes for pickles: sweet, dill and spicy.
Remember, this is Hopkins County Trash Clean Up time. County commissioners in all four precincts are offering a place for you to dispose of trash. They will even take paint if it is dried up, but no hazardous materials or commercial garbage. This is a free service provided by the county and commissioners. They will be accepting trash at their respective county barns from 7 a.m. to 3:30 p.m. this Friday, April 29, and Saturday, April 30. Check with your commissioner for any other questions on what they will and will not take. Beth Wisenbaker is our commissioner here in Precinct 1.
