The way I see it, if you want the rainbow, you gotta put up with the rain.
We did have some rain Sunday. Not enough, but still greatly appreciated! This rainbow made me smile.
Back to being hot and dry. The fire in the cove came back to life today – and they were fighting it fervently, dumping water and making firebreaks.
Our cows have had an outbreak of pinkeye because the flies have been so bad. The face flies get on their eyes and spread it – eventually their eyes start to run, and when it gets really bad they turn white and look ultra-spooky. Hoping we will get some relief from the heat and dry and that will help them heal.
Of course – I had to display something of mine on Curtis’s table. This table would be a perfect small coffee table. Made out of reclaimed wood from the old barn we inherited, a beautiful, rustic holder of vegetables (or magazines, books, or coffee for that matter). Yours for $350.
What’s in the bucket? squash, broccoli, beets, potatoes, mixed lettuces, red or green cabbage, pickling cucumbers (giving you a week off from kale!)
