    With all the rain we've had we started up the fans in the barn to try to dry it out alittle. Goats give off a lot of moisture.

    Out came the sun and woke up all the bugs!!!!

    My barn is dry....just a few goats...and a blue tarp somewhere under all that litter that has put a stop to Spring time problems!!!

    Took my girls out for a two hour walk and now they rounded out like a barrel of beer....burps and all ;)

    I can't see the sun, so send it this way. I can see big raindrops, dropping,dropping, it has been raining all night and today, but my garden is smiling.

    A sun? Is this a new invention? We don't have that here in this part of the state yet.

    Bright sun, hot, 76F today, 88 yesterday (hardly ever gets that hot here), nice brezze from the water. A sprakling beautiful Vancouver day. No rain for a week. It's as hot as summer, and only May 28.

    Will put the garden in next week at the cabin.

    Now I know who's been hogging all of the rain.... :haha: :haha: :haha:

    It's been six weeks since it rained here, I'd just about surrendered the garden to the drought, and was falling back on my irrigating, and concentrating on just keeping the orchard additions alive... and today I've already got 1.2" and it's still raining...

    anyone else tired of the rain, just send it my way..........

    You know I'm really mad...

    Even if it doesnt rain and the wind doth blow for 5 days straight I still cant till the garden and get it in....Thank God I waited though...the seed would have rotted or floated away! I did plant some peas and lettuce and spinach and kale back in April on a day that was 80 degrees.....

    Now I need to go buy some short season corn...my 85 day stuff is not going to work!

    Those of you in TX can have the rain as long as you keep your snakes! I DO NOT LIKE SNAKES! Not even the itty bitty ones that live here in Maine.

    Oh no now I'm going to dream about the nasty beasts..... :no:
