They said soybean and corn are going up in price already. MD seems to be OK at the moment (because the farmers seed (?) the corn late - like May or June), so will see. All we can do just wait anyway. All of us. :)

Ok, dance a little harder! LOL!
Last night we had some TERRIFIC storms come through, about an inch in most areas... EXCEPT FOR US!!! Our mountain range acted like a wedge and split the storms east and west. We got a tiny sprinkle, didn't even soak the patios.
I can't tell you how mad I was last night sitting on the porch, lights flickering from the lines being bounced from the storms to the east of us. To add even further insult I had to listen to the thunder and watch the lightening all around me! Here the valleys amplify it and it sounds like bombs dropping.

Sigh. Looks like no more chances for another week and temps in the 100's.

We dug the hole for the 550 gallon water tank yesterday and were worried that the ground would be super hard, it was like digging into flour. I've never seen it dry that deep, usually you get a foot down and see SOME moisture, nadda.

Join us birdbrains MHF and get your chickens!! IF nothing else you'll have plenty of eggs! Going to try a winter garden this year, maybe even try more squash and zucs. We were going to sow some major feed plots on the bottom 60 but I fear it'll be a lost cause. Now I know why so many fawns were abandoned this year, I know several people who are raising them. Little Deer is doing well, but if we get hungry.... JUST KIDDING!

You can get a lot further with a ladder than you can with crutches!!
What do you mean what do I mean?

Yikes on the ground, that is bad. Haven't dug anything up here to see and don't think I want to.

We get eggs now from "the girls" that my daughter claims ownership of, she shares them with grandma. I used to have an insane fear of chickens (stupid I know) when I was little we had corgis, one of them snuck in the coop behind me and herded all of the meat birds mom was raising out over my head. My mom still laughs about watching me run out of the barn swarmed in a flock of chickens being chased by a little stumpy legged dog. They don't bother me much now, I'd like them to eat and them to eat the bugs, with the ticks this year I briefly considered a few guineas but quickly opted not. Too darn noisy. I don't know if I could eat Little Deer but my hubby will hopefully fill a couple tags come deer season

The one silver lining in my yard, with the weather that everything else is despising my hibiscus is loaded with blooms. First ones have started to open

Life is like a camera. Focus on what's important, Capture the good times, Develop from the negatives and if things don't work out, Take another shot.

Soybean went up over $50 in two days, it is still on the rise. Corn is just as bad.

This is what happens when you have democrats in office
