A dreary day

It has been a rather dreary day here. But at least it wasn't raining. It did dry a little today and then around dark it has started to rain again. The yard is a mess now and the garden is no doubt getting taken over by weeds. I know it will be too wet to plow for some time. So am thinking tomorrow I will just do the weeding the old fashioned way and go in there with a hoe and get some of the weeds out. I prolly have peas ready to pick and can. The sugar peas were blooming like crazy last week and it don't take long till they are ready. I really need to get the rest of my mustard and turnip greens cut and canned too.
Rodger got the partition put in the brooder house this evening so the little chicks could be put in with the bigger ones and not get walked on. Now I need to round  up another feeder so both bunches have a feeder. I need to make some more feeders from 5 gallon buckets as the ones I have are deteriorated to the point that they are cracked. Need to be on the lookout at flea markets for 2 inch deep metal serving trays to use for the bottoms, I have plenty of 5 gallon buckets.
Not much else happening here, so till next time, blessings from the McGuire homestead.

Hey Chris,I can relate to the monsoon weather. It rained a lil shower early today and this afternoon I finally got in the garden. Dang the rain packed it down hard as a rock. But everything has come up and is growing.
Busy alas happens after vacations. lol
