Ready for the log truck

Ready for the log truck

May 31, 2013

I can scratch this job off my list. The logs have been sold, picked up and we have been paid. The log cart and equipment is back home. I will say not a bit too soon. The temperature has skyrocketed, especially for this time of year!

Yesterday, we got a very big, sudden rain storm. It cooled things off for only a few minutes, but it flooded things that are still standing in water. It was a doozy 😮

The weather has taken a turn towards summer, but the humidity is making it so that I don’t dare cut hay. I don’t have a way to make silage bales, so I must work with the weather to get it dry. It is early, so I am not stressing …yet.

The garden was ready to be planted, that is before yesterday’s soaking rains. We will be on hold for a few days. The newly planted farm crops, however, are enjoying the moisture and heat. It is a mixed bag and that is just how farming goes.

We will just work on firewood. That job can be done almost anytime. It warms you twice anyway, so these hot days won’t make much of a difference. The flys are starting to bite and the humid air makes them seem to bite even harder … I guess most of us northerners get grumpy when it’s hot!
