Of course, with everything that has been going on lately, the tasks lower on the totem pole get pushed off. I should have been tying tomatoes onto the trellises for awhile now, but that hasn’t happened yet. Evidently the plants in the greenhouse kind of love the place. The walkways are overgrown and the tomatoes have hundreds of flowers. So now we have to walk by shuffle stepping so as to not damage the plants by stepping on them.
We are going to have a bit of a heat wave the next few days so I added another ventilator fan to keep the air moving. The fruit is staring to set so we don’t want all of this progress to get stopped in it’s tracks. Everything is doing amazingly well. I have to take an injured goat to the vet (probably today sometime), then I’ll get to working on the plants again. Fortunately, plants don’t demand as much from you as those farm creatures with feet, mouths and eyes. Having my new farm hand has been a big help. That, and putting down the saw for awhile. As a good friend said the other day, “You do know that you are good enough, right?” No, not really, but thanks. I farm to burn off the crazy…. and there is a whole lotta crazy to burn.
