We started off 6:00 a.m. with our typical summer morning weather........45 degrees.........and our typical summer morning attire:
winter coats and stocking hats
I didn't have to lug around the bales of hay
my little feller did it for me
my sweety milked for me
in about 3 hours time
we got 4 rows of this 30x100' patch weeded and All of the 30'x100' bean patch weeded
walked down the lane around 10:00 for breakfast.....ate local cantaloupe to tide us over until the roasted veges were done
beautiful peppers I got at market from Janae
mixed with new potatoes, baby beets, onions and carrots
drizzle on enough olive oil to coat well and just a little more cause it tastes sooooo good, add freshly ground sea salt, and seasonings of choice. I like Italian. You might try spicy Cajun, or even use a salad dressing or vinaigrette
Place on a large baking sheet.
Roast in a hot oven--400%--- until the skins are crisp. Stir often.
Got pounded on by nickle sized hail while the potatoes were cooking. I was afraid it would beat down all the crops, especially the beans we had just weeded, BUT it didn't last long enough to do much damage.....WHEW!
Here's the best part......... Glen was able to get he and I tickets to see to the matinee production of Les Miserables in Cedar City at the Shakespearean Theater. I am at a loss of words to even describe the poignant beauty of the production. Sell your car if you have to and go!
The boys worked hard and got a couple more walls painted while we were gone.
the vehicle reached a milestone on our way to Cedar
hopefully.......... it will go another
And to end an already perfect day. It rained and rained while we were gone! This is what we came home to
our neighbors road looked like this......hope he can get to work
The evening was spent working in my yard at the house because I didn't have to be at the farm watering.
I am still smiling. HOPE you have a perfect day in the near future.
