Things have been really dry on the farm.
I read posts from others that tell of non-stop rain.
Why can't Mother Nature spread it out a little more evenly.
Watering has become my new morning routine.
Some mornings I haul the water by hand, but hey its a lot easier and more fun to do it with the golf cart!
I fill the 5 gallon bucket from the well.
The smaller buckets come from emptying the de-humidifier in the basement. I get 2 buckets full a day!
The dogs won't ride, but have fun running beside the cart.
My first stop is the peonie bush I planted early this spring.
Can you believe there wasn't a single one on the property.
You have to have peonies on the farm.
The beagle is on the trail of something!
A bucket full for the peach tree.
This tree was planted early this spring. I am so glad we did, after losing our big one to a wind storm!
Next is the apple tree.
He is looking better after losing quite a bit of leaves in the spring wind storm.
The other apple trees are loaded again this year.
They don't look as big as last summers crop, but will still make some great sauce and pie filling.
The last little tree is the pipeliners newest transplant.
A volunteer dug up from a friends yard.
I take the golf cart on a little tour of the yard before it goes back in the barn.
These lillies popped up this year. I sure don't remember them in the yard last year.
They have a glittery blue edge around each petal.
A trip past the sunflower patch.
There will be a good supply for the Farmers Market this Friday!
Looks like the hostas in my new bed really need a good drink.
Back to the well to refill the buckets.
This is my view as I stand at the well.
A view that always makes me thankful for Gods hand in bringing us to this great space.
Oh the rains will come, they always do.
Until then I will enjoy this morning routine!
