Finally some rain

We finally got a little shower of rain today for the first time in a couple weeks. Not heavy rain but gentle fall showers to help the late garden crops along. The mustard and turnips are looking good so far and the little beets I sowed a few weeks ago are coming along too. Had enough rain to add a good bit of water to my rain barrels that I use to water the chickens too so no need to stretch the hose to the backyard.
Making progress on the root cellar as well. Got the concrete ground out and smoothed on the inside and pressure washed in preparation for the thin coat of cement that will hopefully be put on tomorrow. This should make the interior smooth and easy to paint. Then all that is left will be filling the holes left by the forms on the outside and waterproofing and back filling. Then we should be all set with a good root cellar and storm shelter.
Not much happening on the homestead this lazy Sunday. But was a nice cool pleasant day to be outside enjoying the fall air. Till next time, blessings from the McGuire homestead.
