Nice Days

      There was quite a bit of rain last week . . . even some tornados blowing through Oklahoma areas. We heard of one family that lost 1/3 of their house but, thankfully they were not in that part. Their barn was also flattened with all of the goats in it - thankfully, again, all of the goats were able to crawl out and all survived. We spent some time as a family talking about building a basement or storm cellar of some kind. So, we will see what we can pull off in that department.
       With several days of no rain this week, we will hopefully get more plants into the various garden plots. Today we managed to pick the weeds out of a 20' by 25' (or therabouts) plot of land. Nine trenches that were each about 20' long were then filled with red seed potatoes by the kidos. If our calculations are correct and if the Lord blesses our planting, then we should get over 1,000 potatoes!! Pics of that later.
      For now, there are things to do . . . to batten down the hatches for the storm that is suppose to blow through tonight.
