Dry Dry Dry

"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." -Isaiah 58:11. Mighty dry and windy round these parts. Feeling blessed we have good water. Without it we'd be in Barney...Barney Rubble...TROUBLE! Having some germination issues so we've had to really step up the watering efforts, sow a lot thicker, and replant here an there.
 

 Tater's 'r starting to go off

Flooding tater rows
 Got another range shelter built and the second batch of birds out to pasture
 Set up a sprinkler system to try an keep things wet.
 Bit of a battle but seems to be helping
 Peppers starting to set
 Squash'll be going outside soon
 Maters'r thickening out
 Progression rows coming along slowly but surely
 New deer fence out back, thanks Shawn and Joy.
 Plumping up
Just waiting for that mid-June growth spurt to hit. First CSA pick-up this week and hopefully we'll make it to the farmer's market next weekend. Our thoughts and prayers are with those affected by the forest fires. Please be careful out there and pray for rain!
