Mr Sticks and Strings Strikes Again!

Now I just think he is showing off!  The Herbal Husband aka Mr. Sticks and Strings planted his beans finally last week or the week before!  Some years it just takes forever!  He is very methodical!  Here is another view!
We hopefully will have a lot of beans!  Got to go!  The neighbors went on vacation and we have an apple tree that is invading their space that we have to cut back.  Their dogs will be going crazy!  Should be noisy if nothing else!  Hope you have a great day!  Talk to you later!

Can Mr. Sticks and Strings come visit my garden this weekend??? I could sure use the help {:>) lots of stuff blew over in the storm last night.

I'll ask him, but I'm thinking he has enough to do here! Sorry about your storm damage, Carol. Hope you can get it cleaned up quickly!

your garden is lovely.
lemon verbena was introduced to me in college by my sweet neighbor and gardening friend. it is the best herb out there, amongst many good rivals! xx

That is funny! Mr. MoonCat was like that too when putting in the beans. I was back there saying "hurry up, put the sticks in so I can plant the dang beans..". He just plodded along and had to have it all just perfect. Thank goodness he ignores me on a regular basis!

BTW, your horsey prize package is on a bit of a delay as something is not here yet......I'll let you know as soon as I mail it out.


What an adventure I had visiting your blog....why I haven't before I don't know (time??) is wonderful and all your "favorites" are so wonderful too. I will be a CONSTANT visitor from now on!!! Judy

I wish my strings with tied this neatly! I need to plan better next year.

Thanks Angelina. Lemon verbena is the best. I just made a lemon verbena bread this morning!

Mr. MoonCat and Mr. Sticks and Strings seem to be a lot alike! Scary! Thanks for the update on the horsey package. I will look forward to receiving it!

Glad you finally got some time to visit, Judy! Thanks for your kind words.

Mr. Sticks and Strings seems to get better with each passing year especially on structures!

Thanks ladies for stopping by!

Seeing that photo gives me hope that I can perhaps get one pot full of beans this year. Our garden did absolutely nothing! I thought it might have been my soil, but lately I have heard other people complain that their garden never grew too.
By the way, I've become a follower now as I love reading about herbs!!
Have a great rest of the week!

It has been so hot here this summer, compared to last year that was cool. Hopefully, you get going with the garden soon. Thanks Ulrike for being a follower!
