A diary of the day to day happenings on our homestead.The good days, the bad days and those bordering on total chaos...

For the last few days we have watched 3 or 4 different weather channels in hopes of finding a "window" of no rain so that we can do some mowing. Today seems to be a good as any. Of course, there are never any guarantees, but the hay needs to be mowed. The mowing task was split between my father -in-law and our youngest son. About 6 acres went down today. Good Lord willing and the creeks don't rise, will be picking up on Monday or Tuesday!
While they mowed, I worked the garden with our intern. Today we finished all the weeding and harvested strawberries. I planted another 24 tomatoes, 16 peppers and some more celery. Now all that needs to be done is some cultivating with the tractor and a bit of tilling. Tomorrow!
