the only thing left
That is the one problem with gardening or any other agricultural enterprise: There are no sick days. We have disscussed getting a milk cow, but you have to milk the dang things everyday. Even the I feel like I am going to die days or the I have to work fourteen hour days, everyday. I can deal with being sick and I can deal with it being freaking hot, but you put them both together and I am out.
With convergence of my illness being over, my census work ending and the kids going back to school I am hoping to do some late summer planting next week along with getting ready for hunting season. That's right large pallets piled high with 50lbs sacks of corn have begun popping up all over town. From Wal-mart to the quickie mart there is few places you can't buy a sack o' corn as the season comes near. I need to clear my spots and get set up so that I am not disturbing it when it gets closer to season open.
