Make Hay While the Sun Shines

Posted on

Or maybe I should title this post, cut the grass before it rains again. Remember this pic from yesterday?

weather with the rain 076

All that rain. Today it dried up enough in most of the front yard to cut it.

Except we still can’t go down into the hollow below the guardrail, where it is still soggy.

We went off to Pennsylvania today. Our annual “Check Out the Cemetery” trip. To see if any maintenance needs to be done on my in laws’ graves. It was still raining up there, and I still get slightly weirded out by those “windmills”.

A few years ago, they appeared on the hillside behind the cemetery. Including the one just the other side of the fence from my inlaws’ gravesites.

We did have to make a side trip to get authentic kielbo from the local vendor.

Interesting, though, it ended up not as garlicky as my husband remembered it. Still, it was the basis for dinner tonight.

We took the back way home to stop at Peters.

Some strawberries, English peas, high tunnel cherry tomatoes. There weren’t any shoo fly pies, unfortunately.

Then, home to cut the grass, and cherish that sunshine to eat out back while enjoying the view.

Hope the weather stays nice.

Retired, I am following my dream of living in quiet west Howard County, a rural oasis, not far from the urban chaos, but just far enough. I love to cook, bake, garden, and travel. I volunteer at Howard County Conservancy. I lead nature hikes, manage programs and show children all the wonders of nature, and the agricultural connection to their food.
