It Finally Got Here.....

The rain that is....We got quick showers for four days.  Showers that may have lasted ten minutes.  Today we got the rain.  It's rained off and on most all day.  A good slow rain is what we were needing and that's exactly what we got.  Right on time!!!

Now we can get the beds ready to plant another garden.  We're thinking the bed we have cucumbers in now is going to be planted with Zipper Cream peas (that is if I can find some seed).  The yellow squash bed will also be planted with the Zipper Cream peas.  The bed where the zucchini was planted will have yellow squash planted there.  The Swiss Chard bed will be growing cucumbers and we will pull up the green beans around the teepee and replant with more green beans. 

In our front yard we are planting flowers (zinnias, marigolds, and cosmos of several different heights and colors but across the back of the bed we will plant giant sunflowers. 

I'm thinking a few tomato plants in the flower bed is a good idea too.  Now is the time to get those last tomato plants in the ground so we can have tomatoes until frost.

That's our plan for the garden for now.  Of course as things go this is subject to change.  I'm hoping nothing changes and we can have veggies until frost.

Nothing new is happening with the animals.  We're just trying to keep them as comfortable as possible in the heat. 

That's the way life is here at Hunny Bunny Haven.  The best kind of life one can live.  Thanks for coming by.  I hope you'll drop by any time. :)
