Mark and I both made an early start this morning here on the farm. With so many days..weeks with the temperature being so hot this morning felt like a spring morning. We did get a bunch of rain last night and Mark spent the better half of the day grading the drive way where it had washed out and trying to once again patch the bridge where flash flooding washes away the gravel leaving a huge ditch. But all in all the damage was minimal and the rain welcoming. There is so much that needs attention yesterday it takes me a moment to dial in on what where I really need to start. I decided to start cleaning the kitchen garden beds. This poor garden has been so ignored all summer. I can’t remember the last time I have worked in it. And trust me…it showed my neglect and rewarded me with over grown beds that bore nothing but weeds, grass and bugs. It’s a mess and that is an understatement. I did manage to get several of the beds cleaned out and ready to replant…it is so much easier to pull grass and weeds after the rains while the ground is soft. It felt so good just to be back outside again without broiling to death.
