We put in a long day working on our wood supply today. When coming inside and attempting to sit down on the commode elicits an involuntary groan, you know you've over-used your muscles a wee bit.
I think we felt we had a little catching up to do because we failed to get anything done to further our wood working endeavors over the past weekend. It rained both days; Saturday we got 1/2" and Sunday gave us 1".
Our temperatures at night have still been dropping down into the 40s so I was beginning to worry about the beans and corn I planted a little over a week ago. But when I took a quick run through the garden before dinner tonight, I was thrilled to see beans up about an inch and even some teenie-tiny corn sprouts poking through the soil.
The green leaves of the potatoes seem pretty sparse to me, but I remember saying the same thing last year, and we ended up with a fantastic crop. This is my unfavoritest time of the garden . . . while waiting for everything germinate and sprout.
About 5 o'clock tonight our clear, blue skies of today disappeared and clouds moved in. Now at 6:30 it's quite gray (AND buggy) outside so my plans for attacking the upsurge of millions of weeds in the garden is going to have to wait. Possible rain is forecast for tomorrow, too, so I don't know what our plan for the day will be. We'll have to wait and see what it looks like in the morning.
Now I'm going to get cleaned up by taking a long shower and going to bed early. Hope you all have a good evening!
