gotta work when the time demands it. cant wait until it is convenient. I tilled my corn field because of the predicted rain. it might be muddy all week now. tilling weeded the garden and formed up the hills in the rows of corn. I also planted my mattwaoshe and rabbit beans in the corn rows. I added some sunflowers in the rows too.
after tilling, I made a dozen hills for my vine crops. I planted 4 hills each of watermelon, cantaloupe and crooked neck squash. I will add crooked neck squash in my corn too.
i have a chair in the shade of one of my oak trees. I take a break now and then while working. I had a small stool next to my chair to hold my phone and speaker. I got one of those Bluetooth speakers to blast my music while I am working.
i got done with my work and kicked back. it rained last night. more rain is predicted most of this week. the seeds I planted should germinate. there are no weeds that will get taller. my corn will get taller though. my field garden is in good shape. I noted that my sema plants came up too.
i went out to feed the chickens and gather the eggs. it was sprinkling as I walked to the chicken house. I just walked in the rain. them old guys always said you don’t run from what we are asking for. we need rain for the gardens. I got a little damp but I didn’t care. I liked that smell of fresh air during the rain. we leave our doors open to breathe that air.
i am always more active during the spring. I have gardening and spring chores to do. i also start walking more. that is paying off. my Fitbit is keeping track of my steps. I am hitting 10 thousand steps a day quite often. not every day but most days. my weight is down. I weigh less than I have in a long time.
since it is wet I will work in the carport. I will build another 8 foot work bench. I have more nails now. I have lotsa room now that I have more storage space. I like building things and gardening. I can see what I have done. that gives me a feeling of accomplishment. I know it is done because of my labors.
i am thinking of buying some more hummingbird feeders. I have 3 of them. I like seeing the birds flying around. I hear them buzz by a lot while I am working. i have one feeder hanging by my kitchen window. we can see the birds feed when we are inside.
i have to run to town to buy more chicken feed and dog food. the feed store I go to isn’t ever crowded. I wore a mask and gloves the last time I was there. I will again. gotta be safe.
gotta go so I can work this afternoon.
