good morning

The steamy sunrise is beautiful, I know its going to be a hot one today with 100% humidity so I've got to get out early and come in just when it becomes absolutely unbearable, which is around 3pm. There always work in the house to be done, cheese to package, feta to salt, laundry etc. Then its back out to gather eggs, feed lambs and milk goats, move sheep and Finally dinner and then bed.
The weeds are growing faster than we can get to them so it's a battle to stay ahead. Cultivating is best when done when the soil is dry so the sharp hoe can slice through the stems of the non veggies. When its wet the hoe blade gets dull fast and picks up more soil. So I wait till the ground dries a bit which the weeds love. Ugh! What can ya do?
The Chard pictured above is now on the top three list of things I love to eat. We lightly sauteed it with onion and garlic last night and served it over a tostada that was topped with avocado, black beans and goat cheese. It was fabulous. With a cucumber salad on the side. That a good meal for a hot day out in the field.

Just found your blog! I'm hoping to make it to the Lavender Feast next month. The abducted-by-aliens thing is funny. Sometimes I feel like I was abducted too (from Sacramento to eastern Oklahoma).
