Rainy interlude

Yesterday was a super planting day. Travis, my niece's husband, showed up to help plant tomatoes. So the three of us planted 200 of 300 tomatoes in 2 rows. We planted a set of rows because we were planting tomatoes in 4 and 5 inch pots. Using a hand post-hole digger to make the holes for plants up to 2 feet tall is easier done in an area off the back of the pick-up so we worked a row on each side, thus the set. Travis was a digging machine! Oh, for the vigor of youth. Plus it just turns out Travis is a pretty good worker. Good enough to wear out dad and I.

It totally rained last night like way over an inch according to the bucket in the yard. And it is still gently showering now. Perfect weather for the transplants.

Can't work much in the fields, the king of mud rules the land. So I'm going to run errands in Grants Pass, go to Greenleaf Nursery and pick up some eggplants if they have them. Then I'll probably spend the rest of the day working on some website design stuff.

Enjoy this lovely day on planet Earth.
