Spring vississitudes

Yesterday was a pretty good day. Got the pumpkins, winter squash, watermelons, cucumbers, potatoes, onions, cantaloupe and corn planted, in that order. Now just have to do that all over again every week until the 4th of July. With the tomatoes thrown in for good measure.

The PTO clutch spline on our tractor is starting to wear out so we've got to cut back on using it to till, bush hog or run the big one-way disc. So we'll have to rent a tractor with a tiller a couple of times in the next few weeks. Ouch! Time and money...

Dang Grants Pass Irrigation District is taking its good time getting us water again this year. They say they'll start working on getting water in the ditch around the 12th which means we probably won't see water here until the 20th. So we're also having to hand water our early transplants such as cabbage, broccoli and lettuce.

Oh well, life can be a struggle at times but at least I'm free to decide.
