Savage Farming

Sunday, June 08, 2008


It's such a lovely day I hate being bleak.

We're all still struggling with recovering from that bad cold. I'm just happy I haven't had to use my inhaler in over 24 hours. But still having aches and little fevers.

Now to truly ruin the mood of recovery: the irrigation district has failed again and the ditch is dry. 2200 tomato plants, 2500 cole/lettuce, 500 sweet potatoes and countless others now in jeopardy. Can't call to find out what is happening until tomorrow. Fingers crossed that it is just a minor problem with a quick fix.

The polywogs and tadpoles have begun to emerge from the pond. Dozens, hundreds of tiny frogs are scattering over the gardens. What fun! With the ditch filling so late in the year these frogs and toads have been in recession for the last 6-7 years but now that we've been keeping the pond full early they have a chance to restore their numbers. But for sure the environmentalists tell us how destructive those farmers are to the ecosystem. Feh! to them. Mankind is the environment.

Y'all have a super fun spring day.
