I'm thrilled it's raining. Watering the garden just keeps it alive but rain water makes it grow and produce. Here's the 10lbs of zucchini I sold at the farmers market Saturday morning. I didn't get a picture of the cucumbers, they were a last minute pick and bag deal right before I left. Tons more coming on for this weekend tho. Cucumbers are hot sellers. I picked my first horn worm off the tomatoes last night. I've been dreading those things and this year I have a large tomato crop that will need a look-see a couple times a day. Time consuming. Since I don't use any chemicals here, the worms will all have to be hand picked and squished. Wish I could train a chicken to follow me around and eat them, LOL
My soaking wet house goat that thinks she's a dog was so very happy to see me come home from the post office. Did you know wet goats smell like burnt hair? Ew. No wonder they hate being wet, they stink bad. Poor Lil Sister just doesn't have the brains to get out of the rain.
Well, the source of my stress is going to stay away for a couple of weeks. Gee, thanks. Not to help me of course, just doesnt want to be around when there's no electric. I'm $326 short so it's unavoidable now. Oh well, at least it will be quiet around here. But, no electric will keep me from posting here on the blog. No sense in wasting 2 gallons of fuel just to play on the computer so once the lights go out, the blogging is gonna slow way down. I'll just take pictures and load them all at once to the computer when I can afford to go where I can plug in. Got a lead on a decent full time job but it's still going to be a month or so before I would start. At least it won't interfere with the job I'm supposed to have if the construction guys would get back on schedule. Eh, I can't wait til November for a full time job anyway, I'll lose the farm to the bank if I do. Still gotta pay the insurance and the mortgage to hang on.
So, until the next update, I'm doing what I can.......
Yes, all of 2013 and part of 2012 are missing from the blog. You can thank Mike H for that. Almost all of those posts were about our great friendship and our partnership in farming. You all know how that turned out!
