It dried out enough that I could get a 8 yard dump truck into the area where I wanted my fill dirt (really it’s called chat) dumped. Chat is the fine screenings left over from crushing large rock into smaller rock that is used mostly to top our country roads.
After the heavy rains a few weeks ago I must do a lot of repair around my house foundation as well as fill washouts around walks and around my chicken house.
At one time I could have completed this project in two days, but, sadly I have discovered that at my age a 2 day project may drag on for 2 weeks! YUK.
Early Saturday morning we got a 1 1/2 rain but also had some 70 mph winds with the rain. My second planting of corn was laid to the ground. Fingers crossed, sometimes healthy plants can re-right them self’s and still produce a crop.
Sad smile, well, okra and pumpkins were planted, ‘again’ Friday. By this time next week I will know how much seed did not, get washed out of my garden with Saturday mornings rain/wind storm.
It’s almost 10am and temps will soon be bumping 90 degrees. SO, I’m off to wheelbarrow a few loads of chat before it gets to hot for an old guy.
