Right off the bat, you could tell there was going to be a warmup today.
It's a good thing we put the fan up yesterday.
The girls like to spend time inside when it gets like this. Because they are spoiled I hang up a couple of hay bags to keep them happy. Berlin stays in here until I am through with stall cleaning.
After chores I picked the strawberries that were ripe
and checked on all the gardens.
We must have at least 60 tomato plants and they are doing well.
The potatoes have appeared...first time growing them.
Gary got all the scapes off the garlic and weeded both sections.
The beets are coming on strong....
so are the blueberries
There are many more things planted, but it was too hot to stay out there taking pictures.
It was not even 9am and the girls needed some shade and water.
The cement must have been the cool spot for Sidney.
Class at 10:30. Made sure I had a fan in the window before my students arrived and it was pretty comfortable.
(I brought out a bowl of fresh picked strawberries for them to taste).
While they were here, Todd came to get our reverse osmosis system going. Had to come back once more this afternoon as it was not functioning properly.
Jean (Nancy J) here is the flat of flowers Gary got at the Farm Market.
Made a quick trip to Weggies, then got a pot of sauce ready for dinner. Gary got home around 6 after his Finn and Coop duty, and I went out to do chores around 7. The wind was starting to kick up, but it was still pretty warm.
Took the masks off so I could grab a few shots before tucking them in. All of a sudden the sun was brilliant.
Once again we needed a pasta fix.
Then, it really started to get dark and VERY windy. We were getting severe storm warnings.
I ran out to close several of the barn doors so the heavy rain would not blow inside.
We definitely won't have to water the gardens in the morning.
