Well isn’t that the truth. I have been weeding with such fervor that my pointer fingers and thumbs are puffy and sore.
The garden is coming along. The heavy rain last week really put a damper on things (farm pun) but now the sun is shining and things are starting to perk up! We have peanuts, sweet potatoes, green beans, squash, tomatoes, radishes, onions, okra, herbs, collards, arugula, eggplant, bell peppers, and beets! We lost the cocozelle squash and a few of the eggplants… ah well.
My handy dandy sonar deer-away is really working. I saw deer tracks on the far side of the garden a couple days ago but it was only a drive-by. “And stay out!” Tooty the guard-dog takes herself quite seriously when it comes to critters. She’s a bonafide farm dog.
Not much else to report. I’m really liking the quiet rhythm of the days. I’ve got a wicked sunburn, sore biceps, and I’ve fallen asleep by 9:00 on a number of occasions.
I’ve been keeping in close contact with all the farmers… we swap ideas and get fired up on the daily. Emilee has been working on some farm art… Take a look!
