Tuesday Newsday

Rainy!  The owl is guarding the  pumpkin patch through the showers.  Through some undetermined hard-ship he suffered, he has a stiff neck.  His head is not spinning with the wind.  It is driving Pig-farmer crazy.  Why do I have the feeling Pig-farmer will be buying me an owl with a loosey-goosey neck for my birthday?


I am not getting my gourds planted.  😦  Ah, well… there is still some time.

My flowers are enjoying the rain.

The pigs, you ask?  Growing!  We sold four as feeders and continue to feed eight ourselves.  Wow … are they eating a lot.  And, since what goes in must come out; they are also making chores unpleasant.

Sick  Blech.  But still, gross chores are better than if they hadn’t survived and thrived.  I think.  Most days.

They are still cute.  DSC_0387

And funny.  Hams, you might say!  (Bwaahahahaha!)

Enjoy this day – rain or shine.  Smelly or not.  Bad joke and all.

    Why is it we either get no rain or too much rain? Or at least it appears to be that way to me.

    I was hoping to plant some zucchini this year. Guess I should check and see if it’s too late now.

    Enjoy the rest of your cloudy, rainy, mucky day.

    Rain is supposed to come in here this evening. The hay is up so it can rain now.

    We keep missing the rain. Now we are waiting…..again…..it is dark. Very dark. I wish we had some of your rain. I am tired of watering the plants outside. 🙂 Piggies are very cute, btw.

    What are those yellow flowers? I like ’em. The LAST thing I would want for my birthday is a loosey-goosey necked fake owl. Do those things even work? Mr. Beekeeper across the street has one but I’ve never checked it’s neck.

    They’re awfully cute. Glad we don’t have scratch and sniff for this post.
