I went out to the garden and tried to get in and pick the green beans but that ain't happening this morning. I'll try again tonight after the garden has a day in the sun. It might be dry enough by then. I surely do hope so. I HAVE to pick tomorrow, mud or not! On a very positive note, the corn has nearly righted itself!! I know!! It's amazing, but it's nearly back to normal. It won't be perfect but it's unbelievable how good it actually looks. I am more astonished each day I live as to how God has set nature in order. It is so out of our control it's unimaginable!
It's been almost 24 hours for my stevia extract. I have up to 48 hours before I need to simmer the extract. Thirty-six hours is the minimum it's supposed to set and 48 is the maximum because after that it becomes bitter. So, 36 hours is midnight. I think I'll go 44 hours and start it simmering over low heat for 20 minutes in the morning at 8:00 a.m. because I'm definitely not staying up until midnight tonight.
