Blessed Rain

"but the land which you cross over to possess is a land of hills and valleys, which drinks water from the rain of heaven, a land for which the LORD your God cares; the eyes of the LORD your God are always on it, from the beginning of the year to the very end of the year." Deuteronomy 11:11,12. It's that time of year again when things really start growing. First poppy of the season.
Peas climbing and lettuce leafing out.
Got a good soaking rain on Saturday and showers on Sunday. Look like we'll be getting some typical afternoon build-up all week.Still a little snow on the mountain.Looks like it dumped up there Saturday night.
We received over two inches of rain and it was just what the doctor ordered as thing were starting to get mighty dry.Taters up and exploding.
A little moose damage out in the market garden. What, am I in Alaska or something?
Never seen a moose here at the Barn before. After he wandered though the garden, he passed though the hay shed. He then crossed the drive way where he charged the sheep sculpture. Here he is moseying on up the hill.


  1. Things are sure looking good! Interesting about the moose. We definitely don't have to worry bout that sort of critter here. Wild hogs maybe... but definitely nothing THAT big.

  2. We're a little behind you there sci. I can't believe you have tomatoes already! We just set our maters outside as our average date of last frost was yesterday!


Howdy, surely do appreciate your comments!
