Because the beans I had previously planted were drowned because of the amount of rain we got in May I found some seeds from 2011 and decided to give them a try. All my other seeds are somewhere under a tarp in the backyard and not accessible. I will have to wait until the pile of dirt is gone before I can get at anything there.
I was happily working away doing a bit of weeding after the potatoes were covered and the beans planted when it started to rain. Big heavy drops so I decided to head off home. Well this lot of rain only last less than an hour.
Got a call from our son Don and he is going to pick up some ribs from the Kemptville rib-fest and take them home. We will then be joining him for supper there. A takeout of ribs from the rib-fest.
