It is still raining here. It started Wednesday and has not let up. I want to get the rest of my garden in but no dice. At this rate it will take a week of sunshine to dry it out enough to till and seed! According to the forecast I am not going to get that time. They are saying the rain will be back Tuesday after it ends today. I want to plant!!!!
I plan on bringing up the rest of the horse poop pile and putting it in one pile in the big garden. Watermelons will go in that spot! Has anybody ever heard of stacking old tires and filling them with dirt and planting potatoes in it? I remember reading something about that some time ago but I can't remember where. If anybody knows anything about it could they please let me know.
Brook is at her Mama's right now. It sure is quiet around here. I am missing not making my Saturday morning pancakes! Nobody but me to cook for this morning.
Gas here is $2.79 a gallon. That is really hurting us. Pat has been driving his motorcycle to work. This week he had to dive the truck. He is working today on his off day just to pay for the gas he had to use! A man should not have to work 6 days a week just to pay for his gas to get to work! He drives about 300 miles a week round trip.
Heard on the news this morning that because of Iraq being unstable, the price of gas is going higher. There are predictions of $5 a gallon or higher in places like California and $4 a gallon elsewhere. I know there are millions of people that really don't care what the price of gas is but they better start caring. All the city dwellers that do not own cars and rely on public transportation, beware you are paying for it also. Food prices are rising and the price of other goods are on the increase because guess what, it takes fuel to get your stuff to you. It takes fuel to plant it and harvest it.
I just might be looking for a buggy for my horse. Grass is cheap.
