We got a nice rain today while we were out of town. I am sure this will do the gardens good. Now that the ground is wet maybe I can get my tomatoes mulched.
Rodger had and early dentist appointment and a late doctors appointment so we had plenty of time to kill between the two. We had found online a place in a nearby town that had plastic barrels and containers. So we paid them a visit. I got 2 35 gallon barrels with airtight lids for sugar and such, 12 plastic totes that have lots of cut outs in them for ventilation when I use them for potatoes in the cellar, 2 large plastic totes for storing carrots and cabbage in the cellar. They also had the gamma seals for 5 gallon buckets so I got 2 of those for now. Then the usual stop at Walmart to stock up on sure jell and pickle mix. This kind of stuff is hard to find in our town for what ever reason. So all and all it was a productive day. Here is the link to the container place if you are close enough to go there.
I have had little chickens hatching for a couple days now. I sure don't know what the problem is but they are not hardy and thriving like they should. I have had several die in the incubator after they hatch. Got to do some research on that lil problem. Jason got home from work before we got home so he fed and watered everyone for us.
So till next time, blessing from the McGuire homestead.
