It has been raining since 3 am Sat. morning, it is now Sunday an
finally a break at 10:40am, but only briefly like 2 minutes. As much as
we need the rain here in S. Ga, as most anywhere I am not complaining.
My yard is underwater right now, talk about "A River Runs Thru It".
chicken coups have a good bit of water on the ground, as do my hog pen.
A couple days ago I dug a trench at the low end of the hog pen so some
of the water could drain out, which has really paid off. Now they do
have some dirt showing thru all the water standing whereas there was
none. I had planned on doing some yard work this week end while I was
off, but so much for that. I did get out to the veggie garden an
planted some red onion bulbs I had recieved in a Round Robing I
participated in right b4 Christmas. An cut back some of the dead Asparagus.
It has given me time to do
some inside chores I'm good at putting off. Yesterday I got my juice
done up from the kumquats I had picked at DFIL's house on Christmas
Day. I like the tart/sweetness they give in the jelly. I really like
the homemade jellies, an they make great gifts to. An today I made the jelly, 2 batches. I am also reheating the homemade cranberry sauce that was left over an will jar that up. No need to let it go to waste, its to good!
wanting to get outside an check to see how bad my beds got washed,
usually when we have this kind of rain the mulch in my flower beds get
washed pretty badly. Rains like this is why I don't wintersow seeds.
They will wind up at the creek or in the woods by spring. I had planned to transplant some of the strawberry plants that had been taking over the pathways. I have probably given away 100 plants already an still have plenty left over for myself to extend the patch with.
Not much has been happening garden wise, been busy with work an getting the Christmas shopping finished up. We're finally getting rain more often an is badly needed. Just wanted to write an entry to let folks know I'm still kicking, lol. I've been thinking about putting up a fence around the garden to keep rabbits out. They keep eating down my brocolli an cauliflower among other things. Well I hope everyone that celebrates Christmas, Hannika (sp), or however you celebrate the birth of our Lord has a wonderful, joyous an safe holiday. trudy
