We had a shower on the Prairie this morning and again this afternoon. The Rancher likes to say “more rain more rest!” He doesn’t tend to rest much as he got a little summer fallowing in today, checked some hay fields and spent some time in the shop.
I watered plants this morning, went to the town job and took a good walk this afternoon.
Tuesday afternoon one of J’s cousin’s family stopped for a visit. They took a vacation through the Black Hills and stopped by the Ranch on their way home. It’s fun to have visitors. I made some of my favorite tried and true recipes centered around grilling. I also took advantage of getting more than one opinion on my Improve Cooking Challenge recipe. Entertaining is also a good excuse to do a little better job cleaning the house and spiffing up the yard.
I mentioned that Fritz had fun digging in my container garden while we were in Nebraska. I have just let the damage sit as I am not sure what to do. The good news is I have several pumpkin plants coming! 3 of my 4 tomato plants that are doing good, and I think the peppers will survive. Waiting to see on the spinach; it might be a lost cause. J put some hog panels over the top of the containers, so little paws can’t reach my plants.
Sounds like J has one last branding to help at this weekend. I hope to be in the kitchen!
What are you up to this week/weekend?
