What a tough month May has been. More so in these past couple of weeks.
We have already been threatened with fires twice now. No rain for over a month has made the green pastures turn bone dry and the abundant grass has now turned into a nightmare waiting to happen. One large 600 acre fire has already gotten so close we could started evacuation procedures.
I fear it will only get worse in the coming months.
On the flip side this week has brought relief by way of some rain. The problem with that is the mid ninety degree days stir up sever thunder storms in the late evenings.
Every night this week, forty to seventy mile per hour winds have ran it's course through the Mini Farm creating damage and problems.
The green house was ripped apart by the high winds two nights ago and what is left of gardens are all broke and down from the one last night. There are other things that have been damaged as well but there is no use in listing them.
From one extreme to the other, never on middle ground. One step forward, two back. Yin & Yang, Blah, Blah, Blah.....
As you can tell there has been nothing good to write about. I have racked my brain to try and entertain you good folks, but yet the words will not come.
This weekend will be all about getting things back in order. I need to re-shingle the chick barn and fix the greenhouse for sure. Then do some fence mending and fix some other little things that were tore up.
I hope to save as much as I can from the gardens, if not the pigs will be eating really good for the next couple of days.
Y'all have a good weekend.
