A stormy & busy weekend

Now this is August!  Heat, rain, tornado warnings!  We could do without some of this humidity though! 

Saturday went by so fast I don't know where it went.  All of us were busy with various tasks but we all had to work together to help the corn.  You may recall from my last blogpost that the cornmeal corn was flattened (We've fallen and we can't get up!).  A little garden life-alert button was pushed, and we responded with fence posts and baling twine.  It's not pretty, but hopefully it won't rot!  We really got pounded with a thunderstorm again this morning, but the corn stayed up anyway.

The garden is really producing and I picked tomatoes, more sugarsnap peas, salad greens, green beans, etc.  I am keeping a close eye on those melons, but haven't dared to pick anymore.
Just a few things from Saturday

We've had some geese hanging out in the field this past week or so, on and off, and yesterday we had some visiting sandhill cranes.  It seems like there are not so many around this year so I tried to get their picture. 

They didn't care for my attention and left

As did the geese, but they came back
We are getting ready for our trip to the BWCA.  The goats will be leaving for goatcamp on Tuesday evening and we will be taking off on Friday.  I don't know if there will be a blog here again until we get back... maybe Tuesday, but maybe not. 

Until next time, be well friends!
