When it rains...

When it rains... IT POURS! But only if you happen to get a flat tire on the express lanes of 271 AND the little spare tire lock that is supposed to keep someone from stealing your spare is rusted shut, so your husband has to pry it off with the end of the tire iron, and then your jack (the one that came with the car) actually bends under the weight of the truck! And because you are dealing with all that by the time you actually get to the tire change part of changing a tire it is raining absolute buckets and being the express lane are getting spray from both sides, and by the time you finish this procedure 45 minutes later you are soaked to the bone!

But on a positive note the onions and leeks are looking happier already, and everything should be getting enough water to germinate happily! Today is squash and cucumber starting day!

I hope that you were able to have a nice warm cup of tea or cocoa when you finally got home!

I am dreaming of fresh veggies!

Yeah, and after that some nice wine...

I'm dreaming of fresh veggies to! Right now CSA is on track for the scheduled start date of mid-June, and we hope to have a few things sooner for the market... All those details will be posted soon...

Wine is really lovely on a rainy day. (smile).

Will you be posting information on when you will be at the Penninsula Farmers Market etc.?

Thanks for all of your hard work now when the bounty is not so obvious.

Stay warm and dry.
