Under The Weather

It was windy and gray today.

 I think this is going to be another gloomy spring and summer.  I remember one summer when there were only 8 days that it didn't rain!  The veggies seem to be doing great though, just a little behind.  To top it off I am still not feeling great but  I made myself get out there and work for a few hours.  The flowers have all been moved and after I smooth out the dirt I can call the new row, "finished", and ready to plant.

The sun room is almost empty.  When I get back from the next trip it will be time to start seeds for 2nd plantings.

Do you miss Levi?  Here is a photo of him hauling wood today.

Levi is going to go with us on the next trip, so I am not sure if there will be any updates while I am gone.
