Means slow reading season. With a late winter transitioning into an instant summer in Eastern Iowa we are all suddenly behind schedule as far as planting goes. The farmers are in the fields and on the roads like crazy as they struggle to get their corn and soybeans in (not that China is going to buy them…) Like our larger “gardens” around us, our small plot has remained dormant until this weekend when I spent several hours getting sunburnt and achy cleaning the debris so hubby could till. We managed to till and even get the potatoes, that should have been planted last month, in the ground. The thing is our last snow was two weeks ago so it wasn’t like we could do anything until now. It will be alright though. Like the farmers, it will all get planted and be fine. I need to run to town and pick out the plants and get them in the ground. I might do that today or on Thursday. Depends how this morning goes because I also need to mow for the first time. The good part of mowing is I can listen to an audiobook while riding around the yard. I have Bluetooth headphones this year which should solve my snagging on young trees and bushes problem. I will try to keep up with the reading but I can’t make any promises this month as all of these chores need to get done. Have a great week everyone and happy reading.
