Monday we were blessed with clear skies and record heat. I woke up that morning blessed with being sick with something that seemed to be a cross of the flu and a cold. So it wasn’t until this morning that I feel somewhat OK. I still am lacking in the energy department and whatever I had has moved into my chest, but at least my fever is gone. It just puts us further behind schedule. I have tons of plants that need to go in the ground now. And yet we’ve got lots of plants that just aren’t ready to be harvested.
Oh, and did I mention the rain is coming back on Saturday? And even if it doesn’t, Daisy is due that day so I foresee myself being busy with her even if it’s raining. So I have tonight after work and tomorrow afternoon to desperately try to catch up. I’m pretty sure it isn’t going to happen. Maybe I’ll get some peppers and tomatoes repotted. Maybe I’ll try planting some carrots…again. Maybe I’ll replant the seeds that the seedcorn maggots destroyed. Either way, the next two days are going to be a rush.

We had clear skies on Monday too and we're working like maniacs right now too! I am SO ready for spring….and sunshine!
Ahhh – the life, right?? Good luck!
I was down there during the rain storm and it was horrible! I expect that kind of rain in Oregon, but not down in your neck of the woods. My husband says that it's about 85F up at the vineyard in Kelseyville today. I am home in Portland and I am so jealous.
I got knocked down by something flu-like on the weekend, but fought it off enough to go to work. Until this morning. Holy cow.
One of the cats has been my sleeping coach, and I am trying really hard to not look out the window, because then I'll see weeds that need to be pulled, a bed that needs to be tilled and amended, tires that I need to plant my melons in, etc. Drives me nuts, all these delays. And then we're still working on the enclosed run attached to the young pullet coop (at least the little girls like it out on the patio.)
