The self sustained garden weed fight
Yep, it's a battle with the weeds. All the rain we've had has the grass and weeds out growing the good stuff. That's how it always goes here tho. If it's important, it'll die on you and if it worthless, it flourishes! Hahahaha I found a good use for all those 30 pack beer boxes, I split em open and laid them down so I wouldn't sink in the mud and they're doing multi-duty, keeping the weeds and grass from resprouting, holding the moisture in between the rows, keeping new weeds from sprouting and will be good fertilizer when they rot! How can you beat that? Still have plenty more weeding to do...
Well, I got my baby girl graduated from high school this weekend, got her ride to school up to snuff and had a wonderful visit with my Mom and Dad who drove all the way down here from the Chicago area to see her graduate. I cried. Yep, I sure did. I sent home a few pounds of cheese for my brother who was working and couldn't come down. My baby girl started college today. I was too busy to cry tho. Got all the feeder calves dehorned, picked up a load of feed and made an albino wheel of garlic cheddar. What's albino cheese???? Hahahaha I'ts cheese that was supposed to be orange and I forgot to put the coloring in it! So, it's albino garlic cheddar. It'll eat just the same.
I tried to till the back garden up to plant some beans and another 6 or so rows of corn. Way too muddy still. With rain predicted for tomorrow night, I will give it another try in the am, hope I can make a little headway. This has been one wild spring.
I'm doing something different this coming weekend, I'm going to have a fella here learning how to make cheese. Friend of hubbys wants to learn. Should be interesting and fun!
Other than those few things, it's life as usual here, back to normal day to day life....
