Still Raining

I don’t know what it is doing in your area, but here it seems like we can’t get two dry days in a row. It has been a very wet spring and the temp has been on the chilly side. I would really like to begin working up our gardens, but they are still a bit muddy. I am hoping to expand our gardens this year, as my wife really is great with the canner so it would be great to be able to stock up for the winter. We also have many projects to work on this year, replacing a few windows and finishing the chicken coop etc… I m going to plant a lot of beets this year as my wife learned a recipe from an Amish friend, and they are just like candy to me, man they are good! Would have liked to have the peas in, but it won’t quit raining. On the plus side the grass is growing good so we can let the animals out on pasture and save a few $ on hay. It works good until Tigger the bull decides right as I need to leave for work, that the winter wheat in the field next to the pasture looks much better than what he is eating and walks through the fence! Ah Good Times! The wife is going to take the three chicks out to the coop tonight after dark and stick them under a hen that is sitting on eggs, So learned that by doing so the hen thinks the chicks belong to her and will take care of them, which is much nice than having them in the house. Even though it raining spring is here and Gods earth is beginning to wake up from its winter slumber, and I for one am happy!
