Ridin’ The Storm Out

23 Apr

The weatherman is predicting a 100% chance of rain tonight (so we probably won’t get any) and that wouldn’t bother me a bit. I bad need to get some sod laid down before I get too busy with this crop year, but the weekly rains we have been having have prevented me from doing so. The little bit of corn that has been planted is pretty sad looking.

This is the best corn I am looking at so you know the rest is pretty weak and sickly looking. Sweet Thing and I finished putting more rocks around the drainage grates because the last rain convinced us we needed more.

When the rain shoots down from the valleys it should hit the rocks and not wash out the soil or the mulch. She put some flowers in the big pots after they put the flowers on clearance sale at Lowes because they were near death from lack of water. But one good soaking and they were back to life.

She put some little garden ornaments out for decoration and if you look on the porch you can see one of my Gargoyles sitting there protecting us from the evil spirits!

That monkey grass is really taking off!

This is our metal Bee we bought at an artists craft fair. Those rocks came from our house in town; there are two things that make me feel bad about having to move. For one we are leaving some good neighbors and two, we are leaving 17 years of landscaping behind. Lots of time and money invested in that. Keep prepping everyone. How about a little tune this evening?

    already seeing some snow flurries up here as I was getting the wood furnace going. I was out in the mist this afternoon building a new burn area with cinder blocks and in the space of about an hour the temps dropped a good 15 degrees.

    An inch of rain already today and not a one of the farmers around the Small-Hold has gotten anything planted yet. Going to need at least a week of drying out before they can think about it.

      Winter just can’t seem to let us go and let Spring finally arrive.
