Today around noon, I was out watering some green bean plants in the heat, in vain, thinking, I should blog about this…and then thinking no, people don’t want to hear me bitch all the time. I swear, everything I want to write about is how the weather SUCKS, and is uncooperative in the summer. It’s depressing fighting the good fight. It was so hot earlier, that I would spray my feet here and there, because it was too hot to stand on the dead grass. Occasionally I’d step on a tiny pebble and jump, because the pebble felt like a hot coal. Too hot to stand on the dead grass!!!! We took a break around 2pm, to grab some late lunch. Out of nowhere, clouds rolled in, then rolled through DUMPING RAIN (!!!!!!!!!!) all over this region. Good thing I watered! I was so happy, I almost cried. We needed the rain. And by we I mean for all of us Northwest Arkansas, this rain was for all of us! Thank you rogue storm, now my rain barrels are full and the ground is well watered!
Bitching about weather is in. You are a farmer now, gal. Goes with the persona, no??
Happy rain day guys!!!
