More of the same...

Again, we have rain.
Only about an inch of accumilation since yesterday.

We had fresh corn for dinner two nights ago.
It was wonderful!

The wild plums are starting to ripen.
This year I'm going to make plum jam
(I say that every year and never do).
Usually they are ripe during salsa making time
and I don't get around to them.

My husband is from North Dakota and he is a bonafide water miser.
(not that that's a bad thing)
A few years ago he went to an auction and got this 500 gallon
water tank. He put it under the garage eve and we collect the water
runoff. He has a pump hooked up to the hose and I water my garden
from the tank during dry times.

Since it's been so rainy and the tank is full,
he put a piece of gutter on top of the tank
to divert the water off to the side.

The unintended result has been this nice big ankle breaking hole.

I've moved the gutter to direct the water in a different direction,
but it still makes it way back to this hole, that I've filled
numerous times.

This is Scotch.

What a guy...

We have corn too. It is just one of the best tastes of summer.

What a funny horse. Maybe he has got to get in there to get the best pieces of hay.

so that's how you get horse poop in there. I'm tired of the rain too. but the cooler WX is nice.

Hopefully you can freeze some of that good corn so it doesn't go to waste.

Scotch...what a goofy horse! He's really serious about his dinner! Could he get any closer to his food???

I love that picture of the horse. Kris told me some of your horses are miniatures, are they? Or is Kris just uninformed?
