Saturday was supposed to be "Get the garden under control" day. Worked on it after milking for about an hour until thunder took me under the porch cover. I still worked on pulling old beans off the plants that I had yanked. These will be next season's seeds.
Then....we discovered something on the well pump burst. And it ran all night....and emptied the well. So no water to the barn and coop and everything in the pump house was wet and a mess. And let me just admit. You couldn't even really get into the door because we've (me and Boy) have just been putting stuff "temporarily" out there. So then I spent the rest of the day (and man, it was hot and humid) cleaning out the pump house. I filled up both trash barrels, the wheel barrel, and a huge pile.
Last Thursday, I filled 12 feed sacks of dirt, nails and junk from the tool room in the barn. The trash guy will LOVE us on Wednesday.
