These Two Things

It’s a jungle here on the homestead. This past week the temperatures have been hitting 90+ degrees. The humidity is high too here in the woods and the weeds have shot up. I am taking a breather as i have done frequently today. a little burst of energy and then i take refuge here in the house, kicking off my shoes, propping my dirty feet up and cooling down so i can hit it again. Two things brought me smiles though. I did a succession planting of buckwheat in our vegetable garden today and instead of raking it in which usually does not come up very uniform for me, i dragged a little skid of plywood behind me that was carrying two good size paving stones. it pressed the seed in nicely and smoothed it out too. i will remember that one and then as i was putting away the skid in the garden shed, i heard the familiar squeak of a mouse, i spied it up in an eave in plain sight, it’s nest made of soft yellow lab fur from when i groomed out Gus’ winter coat. Vermin, i know! but it was so cute sitting up on that ledge squeaking a warning not to come closer and i could see the morning light through it’s dainty transluscent ears. well, back to the weeding!

If it weren’t for the weeding, gardening would be perfect, LOL. I do hate to weed, almost as much as the heat………….Kitty
