This blog more than happily accepts cash payment for posting about products, services, business or individuals. We will also accept checks, money orders, gift cards, gold, silver, furs, spices, jam, jelly, sheep, chicken, packs of gum or whatever else you have in your pocket. For instance someone I met at a party once might trade me a dented spam can to write about the time we met, but it is still up to me to say if that person was groovy cool or a total dillhole which is probably more likely.
Down here, everyone says if you don't like the weather in Texas, wait an hour and it will change. At noon it was hot sunny bright day, but by two o'clock it looked like this:
The storm hit hard and then by four it was hot and sunny again. In the hour it rained, I collected about sixty gallons of rainwater, filling the rain barrel and all of the buckets. If we have another long dry spell, this will help water the figs, blueberries, peach and pear trees. I never paid much attention to the weather until we moved here, but if you want to a grow anything you have to hope for the best. The wind and the rain battered the garden pretty hard and the chickens all hid in their boxes.
Spent the evening standing up and staking the tomato plants and standing up the squash. I can't imagine watching an entire crop get wiped out from some crap weather.
