Y'all even with an alarm on my cell phone, I can't get the hang of posting what I am doing...weather it be whatever I am working on. I just dismiss the alarm and continue with what I had been doing weather it be wrecking, driving, picking or chasing chickens.

Yesterday i was in the middle of making beds! When the alarm went off... Field was finally dry enough! So I put 6 rows/beds in!

Also say Hello to our little friend, who needs to be find a new pond. Apparently the beach from our drainage ditch to the pond..is a super sunning spot.

To finish irrigation in Hoop House, we need more jets. The ones that are broken got weed wacked off during the summer...oops. So what does that mean.....a trip to town. Again. Our closest gas station is 20mins away, let alone a plumbing/hardware store. We in the woods out here. I would not have it any other way! Getting ready for October! Can't wait to see everyone!

We use these jets on our half inch poly. They water both sides of the beds at the same time. The hoop house has "permanent" irrigation with poly pipe rather than drip tape in the field. Drip tape is meant to be used only once, then recycled.

Watered, seeded, planted and inspected field crops.
Cleaned, inspected, checked fluids on mower that caught fire yesterday. Shes okay ish and she still cranks!!

**Plants in field like the rain we got. Not too much. Just right for today, no water needed. Thank you Mother Nature. We go Day By Day. Sometimes hour by hour**

Today we worked on/in the hoop house/sweat lodge. Fertilizer spread, rototilled, put irrigation down & fix one side of the roll up sides. Even some seeding. Done. We trying to solarize where the poly pipes are. Kill that grass organically. It will grow literally everywhere. (Evil) but....Then eventually bury the lines to the sweat lodge. Went to town for supplies....of course, whats new on any farm.

Got a phone call. 4 miles away from the farm. Its an emergency! Fire! Mower! Wtf! Slammin gears! Fast thinking from the operator, they put the engine fire out before I got there. (Everyone safe, just freakedd out and possible burnt hair!) No explosions! Zero Turn Mower is fixable...i think. We then calmed our nerves and drug the mower to where we can do a deep cleaning from the fire extinguisher dust and inspecting...well everything!.

Cause of Fire: most likely old grass ignited from the heat or a spark of a bad wire or a oil leak that helped the flames. OR all of the above. Who knows.

Lessons Learned: know where a fire extinguisher is at all times and how they even work! Lol AND clean the equipment throughly, ENGINE included! Everyyyy time. I am horrible and remembering this or even doing this...yuckk but Apparently necessary. Lmao. Just Glad no one is hurt, mowers can be replaced. The fast thinking operator is taking the day off tomorrow. 😆

Day By Day. Hour by Hour TODAY.

Someone loves the blue eggs- Thank you, Venus Veggies!
Will you be in Cape Coral this week?
Thanks again for your delivery 🚚 service! We are pleased with our colorful "green bag" this week.
With the Farmers‘ Markets closed, where are you selling?
Stop By! check it out. Lakes Park is tomorrow! :)
Update: prayers, good vibes, positive thinking, love are needed. Our Farmer/Father/Friend is in the hospital sedated and on a ventilator due to inflammation of both lungs which is a side effect from the chemo drugs. Drs have him on steroids, antibiotics, and fluids. Very scary. He hates the tubes even being 'under' he still trys to pull all of them out. The goal is to get the inflammation down and him breathing on his own. He has no more chemo due to his side effects. He only would have had one more round of chemo cuz the leigions had been shrinking and almost gone. Time. And waiting. Thats where we are at. Please send all yah got, he needs it. Also more cards, stories, or even a get better cards are always welcome! Please send to 112 Marks Rd. Venus Fl. 33960.
