Good news, bad news

11/12/07 Monday
The weather report this morning is both good news and bad news. The hoped for rain tonight and tomorrow probably won’t happen. They think now that we will have rain on Friday. The good part of this is that it gives me more time to get the seed out, which will reduce a lot of the pain this work will cause me. The bad part is any delay getting the Rye to germinate increases the likelihood of a killing freeze wiping out all this work. But that’s all part of farming and why it’s important to get things planted on time. I also have several types of vegetables that should have been put in the ground by now. Lots of work to do preparing the beds for that. I like being busy but need to schedule these tasks so they get done in a timely manner.

So we are getting started nice and early. At some point I would like to go to Harbor Freight in Odessa to see what they have for sprinkler systems. You can get some fantastic deals on stuff there. Mostly tools but there are lots of other things to be found in the store. I need to call Steve Porter and get the name of the company in California that sells the drip feed irrigation tape he uses. That’s another long term investment that will pay for itself. Plants do better with water you know.

Time to get to work now so see ya next time.

They don't need them but money is the root of all sorts of evil and is a powerful corrupter. Many who start out well are poisoned by it's lure. There was a minister, Jim Watson, in Toledo who told me "There's good money in the God business". Come to find out he was and is a liar and a cheat. Left lots of pain in his wake.
