Projects and Progress

Laundry (why, why, why) ... bedding today.

Livestock chores - complete with a newly emerged wasp colony at the chicken shack ... out came the wasp bomb ... the girls must have thought I had lost it ... but the wasps are gone and they got fed.

Picked fat green beans and fed those to the girls.  The girls are eating well today.

Patch tour ... did a bit of spot spraying ... deadheaded the sunflowers (and fed the deadheads to the chickens ...) cleaned out the back of the Rhino ...

Garbage run -- filled up the Rhino with old sprayers, trash from the house garage, junk from the porch, junk from the storage shed .... and tossed it all .... hmmm let's hope the dumpster is emptied before elder #1 realizes some of it is gone!

Test drove a new ATV ... power steering ... heaven on wheels.  Nick wasn't happy I drove it down a gravel road.  He'll adjust.

Finally got cleaned up and got to the cabin.  A brief retreat -- supper and then back home for livestock duty.  Cats this time.

Hoping for a spot of rain tonight -- we need it  .... can't believe I typed it, but we do need regular rain for at least another 3 weeks .. then it can dry out.

Tomorrow's List:

1.   Office homework.
2.   Water the kitchen garden
3.   Respray for deer in the patch.
4.   Turn vines in the patch.
5.   Sew!
6.   Vac & Dust
