The plants survived the storm

The strawberry plants survived the rain we had last evening and the raspberries still look great. Although it is very muddy in the garden. Couldn't do anything there today but got lots of other stuff done. Rodger got the fire wood that we had left over from winter off the front porch and picked up the rest of what was in the woods that he had cut earlier this year. Then he piled brush below the house so we can burn that next time it rains and we don't have wind. He helped me move the porch furniture off the front porch too so it could be pressure washed. After many tries and adjustments to the pressure washer it finally was working right and I got the porch cleaned. Next week we are gonna get the deck stain to go on it even tho the wood is pressure treated. I just think the stain will protect it longer and make it look better too. Also cleaned some area rugs that are not machine washable, well they wont fit in the washer. If it don't rain tomorrow I might get the back deck cleaned too so it can also be re stained. Seems there is always some kind of maintenance when you have a house of your own. But I sure would not want to change that fact. Not much else happening here today. So till next time, blessings from the McGuire homestead.
