Well, as you read above...we had some rain lately. LOL I don’t mind it so much as it is great for the gardens. Everything is growing wonderfully and I don’t have to worry about watering. I probably don’t have to water until Monday or Tuesday and the filled up bottles are ready when I need them. My only worry is that something is eating my white cabbage and Cauliflower! It’s not deer. No deer tracks or other tracks anywhere around the gardens. Probably mice and no reason to fence it off for mice. So I think for this year I have to skip these veggies. I did discover some wild mushrooms growing in front of the gardens. That is amazing because my sandy soil is normally way too dry for them to grow. I really should go for a walk in the woods and look around for more kinds. I’m sure there are plenty there because the ground stays wetter longer then in my yard. I could take some pictures of one brown butterfly (or moth, not sure) and a pretty light blue one when I was checking my vegetables. I’m SO happy with everything. For a first garden it doesn’t look too bad at all. I will have LOTS of potatoes. Next week I will hill them all. My plan is to keep putting garden soil around the plants to get more potatoes in the end. The sunflowers are really popping up now. It will look so pretty once they bloom, which I hope will be sometime in August.
Today we got the news that the exterior work at the cabin will be finished next week. I’m SO exited! Paul and I went today to the acreage to pick up the lawn mower. I mowed a few days ago the yard and the outdoor arena. It looks so much better when the grass is mowed. I’m happy with the looks of my arena. I was a little worried it would be full of holes and mole hills, but it isn’t too bad at all. The mower was too heavy for me to put it back in the truck but Paul is strong and he just lift it up and put it in the back. I needed it to mow around the house in town.
The floor of the cabin was very very wet though with all the rain we had. Paul swiped it out as much as he could with the broom and hopefully it will dry up next week. No rain forecast after Saturday up to the end of the week so that will help. Paul took some photo’s of me in the cabin. That was fun. I pretended to be in the kitchen, living room, bedroom, and bathroom. LOL I also took some pictures of how the view looks like from out of the windows. Scruffy had a good time being at the acreage again. She ran around a lot. Really good for her. After we were done, we marked where the new driveway will come. Paul want to do this himself with some help of friends. He wants to cut down the trees, so that I have wood for winter. I need to make a little wood shelter to store it. I can do that myself. I have some wood to start with and will get some 2x4’s to finish it. It will be just an open area with a tin roof, so the wood pieces can dry all summer. I can’t wait to start with this wood shelter. We drove to the dead end of the road. The farmers fields were very wet and I couldn’t see the river from where the road ended. But it was a beautiful view though with the hilly background. We drove back and tried to see the markers we put in on the other side where we want to have the new driveway. Couldn’t see them as everything is grown so thick. So we just have to go through it where we marked it, cut away all the low growing stuff, and see if it is a good spot. One thing is for sure. I will have lots of wood from clearing that piece for the driveway, and it should be more then enough for all winter long. YAY!
