Mr. D has already given Brandon the chore of taking the lawn tractor and changing the ice and checking the eggs in the egg box. He was excited about being able to drive the lawn tractor down the driveway. Not exactly a "go cart" but better that walking the hill.
We received our little chicks yesterday. I haven't been down to see them yet. I did go in and spread straw around in preparation for them and then Mr. D bought some wood shavings to lay down too. They are so cute when they are little. Then they grow up... 'nuf said.
We have had a good soaking rain last night and this morning. Just what the garden needed. I can hardly wait to get down there and pull weeds and see what's coming up now. I think I will have some brussel sprouts this year. We started them early and they are doing quite well. Should have plenty of tomatoes, cukes, and squash. We had some old bean seeds that we planted and those aren't coming up, so I may have to ditch that idea and go with some other type of bean that is faster growing. I did pick up some "Blue Lake" but would like to get some "Northeaster" which I looked for at the local seed places, but cannot find. Reasonable people have already planted all their crops. I hope these beans make it 'cause it would be really sad not to have a good crop of beans to put up this year. We always have a couple bushel baskets full and we like green beans very much.
And the LORD shall guide thee continually, and satisfy thy soul in drought, and make fat thy bones: and thou shalt be like a watered garden, and like a spring of water, whose waters fail not.
More later... lunch break is over.
