Wednesday on the Homestead
Today was a beautiful day! The sun was shining and we had NO rain.. first time in a week. Sierra and I left early and headed to town to do the grocery shopping. We returned home and unloaded all the food. Then the two of us got busy and cleaned up the house. She did an awesome job cleaning the bathroom right down to scrubbing the tile in the tub and giving the floor a real work out then she handled the living room. I focused on the kitchen, dining room and laundry room.
Then it was time to move outside and get to my garden. I waited until later in the day because the garden was so wet I wanted it to dry out some before I got busy. I had corn plants that really needed to get in the ground. Tomorrow the rain will return so I knew this was my only chance for a few more days. Here are what my corn starts (and cucumber starts) looked liked…
I spent 2 hours in the garden getting them all in the ground!! It was a great feeling to have it all done.. my muscles feel it tonight! Ha, ha!! But that is great.. plus I had 2 hours to soak up lots of sunshine and I really loved that. Here is a pic of the corn plants in the ground (hard to see them.. but the are there!)..
And a quick peek at my tomatoes and green beans.. despite the unseasonably cool and wet weather they are surviving!
Tomorrow if the rain holds off long enough I will get back to the garden and weed..
That’s all from the homestead for today!
