I woke up this morning to the sound of rain on the roof and a little chill in the air. So of course I did what anyone would do under the circumstances. I pulled the covers tighter and went back to sleep for awhile!
The wind has been blowing here for days now. Not just those light breezes of springtime either. I'm talking 40 mph winds. I keep telling myself it won't last, that it will be over soon. It might just be me, but I can't stand heavy winds. Growing up on the Texas coast there was always wind. Always. It was actually one of the reasons that I decided to move away from the coast way back then. Of course, getting away from home and spreading my wings so to speak had more to do with it, but I digress. It seems that once again I am living in a wind tunnel. The first clue should have been last year when many of my plants that weren't staked were growing with a definite "slant" towards the north! Or Maybe that old Broadway tune should have been a tip-off. "Oklahoma, where the wind comes sweepin' down the plains" They don't write lyrics like that for nothing. Yeah, it's like that! Yet again I am reminded that the man upstairs has a wicked sense of humor.
I've been wanting to get some planting done but with the winds blowing like they have been its hard to actually put them in the ground and get them covered before they get blown away. Do you know how tiny lettuce and carrot seeds are?? LOL!! We still haven't got the potato's in either and I hope we haven't waited to late. The spot we wanted to put them is ready now and it just needs to dry up enough to plant them. Most everything else is already in the ground. The cole weather stuff I mean.
I made some wonderful banana bread yesterday and am sitting here now with a hot cup of coffee and enjoying a slice. I was reading somewhere the other day about using banana bread to make french toast. That just sounds wonderful to me and I think I'm going to at least give it a go!
Speaking of french toast ( ok follow along here ) the chickens are doing great in their new home. We are getting 3-4 eggs a day from the girls and we are all happy with that for now.
