Window Shopping and Garden Update

I was scanning the pages of craig's list again. I know it's dangerous for my bank account but I was just looking! Honest! I found another darling little camper for sale on craig's list. I want to paint flames on the sides. :)
13' Scout Camper They are asking $1,800. That's too expensive. They came down $200 already.

This other camper that I saw back in February only cost $1,500. But anyway, I don't need a camper yet. In a year and a half will be out with the big 5th wheel and in with the tiny camper that I can pull with my little truck. At least I know that they appear on craig's list every month or so. I saw one being pulled by a truck that looked an awful lot like the one I almost bought for $500. I'm glad I didn't buy it. That one needed a complete overhaul and didn't have any interior left.

I was watering my garden today and found a bean. My first bean of the year!

I ate it raw. There wasn't much sense in wasting propane and water to cook one bean.

My little garden is doing well despite the 100 degree temperatures. Do you like my make-shift shade? The snow peas didn't survive but they are winter plants around here so I planted them in the wrong season. Hopefully I will get a squash or tomato very soon!

Those fiberglass campers are cool. Plus they look like they last forever. Scout, Scamp, Casita. I like the Egg brand best because they are actually high enough inside for me to stand up.

Your plants are coming along nicely too.

I really want to go in one. I haven't been able to yet, just looked in the window. How tall are you? I'm 5' 8". My 5th wheel roof is pretty low but still comfortable for me.

6'2". The Eggs are 6'7 inside I think, and the others are 5'10 or so.
