It seems we old farm wives have trouble cutting back on the gardens. Come spring we forget there are no longer 6 kids, silage crews and hay crews to feed. The main garden was twice it’s current size not all that long ago. And then there were potatoes and corn in another garden down the field.
We have added raised beds and another greenhouse. This summer with the excessive heat those raised beds required a lot of regular watering. Dave had to haul a 500 gallon tank of water from one of the dugouts on an almost daily basis.
