In our pattern of weather swinging from flood to drought and back again, we’re on the rainy side of the pendulum. I decided to try playing with my camera the first evening as storm clouds rolled just north of the farm.
While many places have flooded with the rain this week has brought, I’ve been lucky. In the last four days, I’ve had about four inches of rain.
I’m not flooding yet, but the barnyard is awfully squishy and muddy. The heat and the humidity has been good for my corn.
On the other side of the fence, the kids are enjoying playing in pasture.
The grass is getting tall.
Soon we’ll make hay off the bottom and back hills.
On the other side of the fence, the boys’ pasture is really getting tall since there’s only two of them on about five acres.
Yes, Fionn and Boeris are standing. I might have to see if we can make hay or mow the bottom part of that pasture. Or I might put the girls over there while I’m in New York and after surgery. We’ll see. As long as we keep getting rain, it will keep growing. Hopefully, some of those places flooding will get a break soon.
