We have been having a break from the rain which has been wonderful. Things are starting to dry out a little around here finally. My DH mowed the lawn yesterday after work and he reported that there were no wet spots this time.
I went out to dig some potatoes for supper the other day only to find that they were starting to rot in the ground, so we dug up two rows, only got a small pail of red potatoes from seven hills that I had planted. The rest of the two rows were bakers, they had all rotted. How disappointing to turn over big clumps of potatoes only to see they were rotten. My DH then dug a few hills in the main part of the garden in the lowest area, they were either rotten or no potatoes at all. We have just a little over a row that seem to look like they may do alright, the plants are still mostly green yet. Gardening in clay soil has certainly been challenging this year. We will work on getting more compost and things added to the garden before next year. I just need to learn more about gardening in clay, it is a big change going from very sandy soil to this (still prefer the clay over sand).
On a brighter side our grandsons spent the night and will be going home later today. We always enjoy it when they come. Although I think they're trying to eat us out of house and home. After supper last night of chicken and dumplings they had chocolate cake, the oldest one said that would last until popcorn and malts later. Time to feed them again, they are waiting for their breakfast. Grandma duties are calling and I love it!!
Have a wonderful day!
