From the Homesteading Journal . . .
. . .June 3, 2014, walked out and and checked the progress of the wild black raspberries. Rain did not arrive. I spent the better half of the morning watering the garden(s) and flower beds. We really need rain.
. . .June 4, 2014, rain finally arrived, could not clean coops, so I opted for cleaning my bathroom and indoor chores. Daughter mucked her goat stall before the rain arrived. Smart girl to get out there early.
. . .June 5, 2014, weeded the back porch flower bed, had kids clean the chicken coop, and called the chicken butchery. Daughter(17) mowed. It was a perfect day to dry laundry outside too. The kids helped me start cleaning up the back porch and organizing their outdoor games.
. . .June 6, 2014,weeded yellow squash, zucchini, spaghetti squash, some cucumbers and green beans. Picked a handful of strawberries. Lots more to weed yet.
. . .June 7, 2014, weeded more of the garden, replanted a few cucumber, spaghetti squash, pumpkin, and watermelon seeds. Started weeding front flower beds.
. . .June 8, 2014, rain arrived.
