Nope, last nights storm took it all. The night before that only one row but now it’s gone.
It’s a short root crop and can’t just be stood back up or even stacked up, so no corn for us this year.
The wind only bent the tomatoes, I think they’ll be okay.
The same for my peppers. At least it didn’t hurt the most health ones.
Plus we got more rain.
With Tuesdays rain and last nights we have had just about 3”. It will make the grass grow more (and by time I get to mowing it when it dries out some it’ll be almost tall enough to bale and it was just 5 days ago I mowed) and the weeds in the garden (I better till it again).
What can a person do, nothing at all. Just save what we can and process what we can and hope that others did better and exchange fruits of our labors when we all get enough.
Today I have just 3 wee ones and we are going to Kim’s to get her boy scout donation things and then go to the park. I am hoping it dries out some before we go though otherwise they’ll get pretty wet. Tonight I go help set up for the garage sale. I have picked up goodies from 4 families so have a suburban filled up. A good couple hundred bucks of stuff in there for them to sell.
I need a vacation, nothing in the future is planned but I still need a vacation. Jim is the only one at the store that makes hydraulic hoses and since we are in the middle of some big machines and farms and trucks we just can’t pack up and leave for a few days so no vacation is planned. Oh well that is life of a small business owner. Just like my daycare, you just can’t close the doors and go anywhere’s, I have 3 families that need me here. Oh I did take two days off when Mike is home the end of August but not in a row so easier for them to deal with. Just a Tuesday to take Mike and Scott to Valley Fair and then Friday for Mike and I to spend the day hiking and talking.
Okay, kids are due, time to fix breakfast and see where the day leads us. Take care my friends and have an awesome day. Blessings!!
