Watering (in progress); unloading mulch (done).
Then there's all that mulch. We got a very special deal on 70 jumbo sacks of it yesterday, some of it still in the back of the pickup.
I would complain about the heat, but Danelle out south of town at Stamps Family Farm already has done that. So go read her account of life on the farm with animals on what was, to date, the hottest day of the year.
Brenda, down in Wayne County, has been canning and preserving --- something I like to think about on high summer days, but not do. Plum jelly and jam. Beautiful photos, too.
If you want to cool off, John Pearson has reappeared in the blogosphere after two months off with an account of a trip earlier in August to Apostle Islands National Lakeshore. This will help.
And it turns out half the world is related to Jones Cemetery, including my friend Jo Porter. Here's a blog I happened onto earlier in the week by an Iowa expat now living in the Rockies. The author of Musings of MidwestAncesTree is related to the Jones and Morlans, too.
A beautiful morning!
