My cousin Vernie, one of my favourite people, let me know that he had some chicken wire to put over my garden to keep out the rodents. So I went over to his place to pick it up and he shared a few hilarious anecdotes from the past. He just slays me! His daughter Tracey has also inherited his wicked sense of humour so we laugh a lot when we are together. I love that my life is filled with hilarity!
Vern also shared one of his new inventions with us, a very cool corn planting machine. The man is a genius!
With chicken wire in hand and though it was raining cats and chihuahuas we braved the rain to reseed and also to put the chicken wire down. It looks pretty nifty and will be interesting to see how the plants can come though it. Hopefully they will not all be gnawed off.
This morning it was still pouring but the seeds seem to one totally in place. I hope it keeps on raining for another day or two since everything is dry as bone here and water is needed to get the food growing.
I left a small rubber container out on the cloth porch last night and it was about 2 inches deep this morning. Thus it was a good rain.
My mom used to sing… “oh Lord don’t let the rain come down, because my roof has got a hole in it and I might drown”, but we are dry in Tiny House Ontario as well as in town doing a blog post.
I think I will sing… “oh lord how I wish it would rain down on me” to keep that water coming for a bit and get my garden going.
