In Need of Rain
My good news to report on is that I have ALL my gardens now turned over ready for planting. I re-edged them all this year, which took time. I had not done this for at least three years. Normally we still are getting some snow this time of year ( did last year) and I am not working too hard in the garden and rather working on spring cleaning. Since the soil is dry and easy to work it is nice to get it done now. And since the blackflies and mosquitoes are not here yet, this is a great opportunity to get the garden turned over. The clouds kept getting darker and then at 4pm'ish it rained for 3 minutes and then the sun and wind took over and that was that!
This morning it is cold out. I had to bring in firewood early this morning and get the cookstove burning again. I will be inside today. Helping teenager with chemistry and washing my kitchen floors. Dearest car goes into the shop to get snow tires off and summer tires on and I need to get to the Hardware store for a new blade for my handsaw, as cutting through the wood is getting increasingly difficult with last years blade.
As I am typing this I am downloading photo's from my camera onto my Photobucket site and washing portions of the floor.
