I am sorry about not being able to post yesterday…the internet was down. Sure was frustrating!
Anyway, it’s back up today, for which I rejoice greatly!
We are racing madly here. Everything came together all at once—the pinto beans needed watered, the corn needed fertilized and cultivated, and needs water —the hay needs hauled in from the last field, and the water sat on it. (Not to mention weeding in my yard –two more huge beds to go—helping a tad down at the other house…clipping hedges and other yard work–ironing and straightening up my house, mundane things but necessary.)
Although, we get up at 4:15 and then finish around 10 at night, there always seems to be something more needing done.
We hauled hay until too dark…Boomer and I picked up the loose bales and broken bales and Terry hauled in the loads.
Around 8:30 or 9:00 p.m. it looked like a hail or rain storm broke over Peach Valley. It was just too hot not to develop some sort of activity in the heavens.
Today we are still in the same race…although, we are gaining on the pinto beans (the beans are up! YAY!) with the water, the small corn field is wet, and cross all fingers, Terry will get the big corn field fertilized and cultivated today-then we start water on it tonight).
Two more days of hauling hay and that will be over. Then, if it rains, all is well.
Although, we are busy; it’s a good busy!
