I really wanted to show some pictures of the gardens after I got all the tomatoes out this weekend, but every time I thought about it my hands were covered in mud and dirt. The weekend rains did hinder production a bit, but boredom prevailed.
Saturday was spent with the family at the BBQ and everything turned out great. My onion crusted plantains did not go over so good, but it was at least something different. Afterwards a whole bunch of us spent the rest of the evening until midnight throwing a ball down at the bowling ally.
Sunday I was ankle deep in water while planting the garden and cleaning up after the storms. I had to replant the corn because it got bit from the last freeze (my fault), plus I finally got the tomatoes out. I have been trying for two weeks to get those in the ground and now it's done. I put milk jugs over them to protect from the wind and hard rains coming back in today and tomorrow.
As far the Aviary, nothing was accomplished. This coming weekend might be a little different though. If the rains hold off and it dries out a little then I might get something done.
I am gathering the parts necessary for the hydroponics system. I jumped it ahead of the rabbit tractor so I will be starting it soon. After over a year of study, I have made the decision to go with the Dutch Bucket System. It is a slightly lower maintenance system and can yield just as much.
Other than that, Saturday morning is looking like a great time to head to the creek. Those fishes have been a missing me down there.
