Garden

I thought I would share with you all a picture of the lower garden.  It is doing pretty good.  The upper garden is having a little more of a difficult time.  We are having trouble keeping the calves out of it.  They seem to find new ways to get out every day and seem to enjoy the corn in the upper garden very much.  Shadow is getting too old to chase them and Jasper is just learning.  He is on the accelerated learning program right now as I want him to learn quickly.  He actually is getting much better.  He “sometimes” listens and obeys commands.  Sometimes he is just so happy that the calves are running from him, he doesn’t care where they are running.  Oh well, that’s life on a farm.

I helped Hubby today at the farmhouse job.  We thought we would start on running the pipes for the plumbing.  However, the walls in the bathroom were in terrible shape, so we started tearing out the sheetrock in there.  We will be running the pipes up and over the ceiling as there is not enough crawl space underneath.   These older homes were built right down on the ground.  The bathroom has a rock type flooring on it and the owners are wanting to keep it.  This suits me just fine as I was not looking forward to trying to crawl under that floor.   The girls worked on history and science while I was helping Hubby.    We had brought our portable grill with us and did  a picnic for lunch.  We had hot dogs, potato chips and oreo’s.  The lunch of champions.  It was fun.  We set up under a huge walnut tree and were entertained by a very friendly squirrel while we ate.  I brought the girls home after lunch.  They did the house chores while I went back to help Hubby.  It was a full day. 

I hope you all have a great evening and God bless. 

 

Rainbow

Hello everyone!  Sorry that I haven’t posted as much as usual.  Things just seem busy here right now.  Anyway, yesterday evening the Lord gave us this beautiful rainbow.  If you look close you can see it was a double rainbow but the one on the left is fading.  This picture was taken at the top of our driveway. 

Yesterday, we went to help Hubby on the job site.  It is coming along nicely.  After school, the girls were entertained by this guy.  He and a few of his buddies were very busy in the walnut tree.

We did get some much needed rain yesterday evening.  The garden is all in, however, the birds have already discovered it and destroyed about 1/3 of the tomato plants.  They love the tender young leaves so all that is left is the stem.  Has anyone else experienced this problem?  Any solutions?

Hubby has been working all week on my car.  He has replaced the rotors on the front and today we picked up rotors for the back.  I am so thankful he knows how to do all this.  His knowledge saves us lots of money.  Well, I will leave you ladies with a picture of the purple flowers that are blooming everywhere here.  I don’t know the name of them but we think they are beautiful.
