Typical Monday....NOT

This morning, bright and early, I picked green beans from the garden, did a little hoeing, set up a make shift trellis and re-staked tomato plants that were getting so big the old stakes were bending over. During one of my many trips out to the garden I almost stepped on this. He was resting under a young pine tree and I didn't notice him there until I was right on top of him. While Elizabeth ran to get the camera for me the snake decided to hide under some black fabric. Thankfully he was only a Bull Snake and not a rattle snake.

Next, as I was in the middle of canning......
I saw a funny looking green bean sticking out of a jar. Upon closer inspection this is what I found...A worm! Apparently he didn't crawl out of the green bean quickly enough and got cooked.
This makes me wonder how many worms I have feasted on without knowing it!

lol...nice worm!

We get those lovely bull snakes too, I always have to pause and make sure it isn't a rattler, then I can take a big breath!
