Rosedale GardenI finally was able to get the tiller on the JD and start plowing my garden. After chopping up the top few inches to kill the weeds, I need to go over it again take it down a few more inches. Since then we’ve had several days of thunderstorms and hot weather. We’ve gone from winter to summer and totally skipped spring. With all the rain, farmers aren’t able to get into the wheat fields to combine. A lot has been bloom down by the storms. One of the storms was going from east to west and produced a rainbow in the west. I’ve never seen one in the west before.

Last Saturday, while trying to put the belt back on my mower, Patches and Levi kept laying over my feet and up against my back worrying about the incoming storm. I finally gave up after the manual I downloaded didn’t match my mower deck. Everyone piled into the garage on the house and flopped down close to the door announcing they weren’t going to the other garage. So I closed down the door, went inside, took a shower and fixed supper. Shortly the storm hit. One of the boomers rattled the house so that Patches was at the door barking let me in. Soon they calmed down and were in the same spot the next morning; that is Patches and Levi. Blackie was after the chipmunk that was in one of my larger plants and turned over a bucket of worm tea in the process. That stuff is like crude oil when it starts drying.
