Busy, busy, springtime

According to the NWS records, April 2011 in Tennessee was the wettest on record.  Yes, on record.  I can vouch for that--the irrigation pond ignored its boundaries and tadpoles moved into the grassy areas.   Last week, Monday and Tuesday, the thermometer read 41 degrees.  The eggplant, tomatoes, peppers, and sweet potatoes were shocked!  Now this week the thermometer has been above 80 degrees every day and there's only been .04 inches of rain for the past 10 days.  This makes for very challenging gardening conditions!

In spite of the weather, the tiller was dropped into the soil.......

two crops of corn have been planted with the handy-dandy (but needy) antique John Deere planter.......

and awesome hardwood flooring was installed in the farmhouse livingroom .......

and diningroom

This is the earliest that a lettuce crop has ever had to be pulled and replanted, but the first two lettuce plantings have already been turned into eggs by the Happy Hens. 

Just a quick update.....off to work with me now; my hoe awaits!
