Plum Granny Farm Weekly Update -- Soggy Bottom Blues

Posted 2/16/2018 7:22pm by Cheryl.

Hello Farm Friends!  Happy Friday!
My daily conversation with the clouds:  "Okay...thanks for your generosity but that's plenty!  Please...we really have quite enough.  I know some folks in New Mexico who haven't seen your kind since October.  They need you much more than we do..."

I don't think it's working too well, do you?

And it's so muddy that even the donkey is asking for curb service!

Yes, the subject is rain.  So much rain.  So much mud.  It was nice to have a respite last night (even had a beautiful sunset!) and for a few hours today but more is heading our way.  

Ray and I are solar-powered creatures.  That's why New Mexico was a great place for us.  We had the opportunity to move to Seattle before we moved to NM and turned it down because there just wasn't enough sunshine.  That's what makes these rainy, grey, dreary days so difficult.  But we will try to look on the bright side.  The hay fields are green again and the peepers are already out!

So time in the greenhouse is even more important now.  Today we got the cucumbers planted and the peas are really starting to pop.

 

And there are many signs that Spring is on the way.  Maples are starting to bloom, the garlic is growing like crazy, crocuses are popping, and the shallots are announcing their presence as well.  

     

So we will look on the bright side.  And listen to the peepers.  While knowing that Spring (and hopefully less rain) is on the way.

Have a great weekend!
Cheryl & Ray
