We have water!!!!!! Yay!!!!!! I wanted to let the water run in the sink for hours, just because I can. hehehehe. But, now, I have to pay for it, so I didn't. Oh well, I'm still happy that I have good water. I've washed many loads of laundry on the same day!!! You don't realize how nice it is to have good water until you don't have it.
It took Hubby and his helpers (my dad and his dad) almost all weekend to put it in. Hubby, at first, rented a Ditch Witch to dig the ditch where the water line went. We figured that since this machine is made to dig ditches, it wouldn't take very long. Wow, were we wrong! It took Hubby 2 1/2 hrs to did just 1/3 of the ditch. Granted, the ditch was 275 ft from water meter to the house, but we only rented the Ditch Witch for 8 hrs. Going this slow, it wasn't going to get it. Hubby was getting upset that it was taking this long. So we ended up renting a small track hoe. More money. :( But, on a good note, it only took Hubby 45 mins to dig the rest. We should have paid the extra money first off and just got the track hoe. At least we have water now.
Speaking of water, we have been getting a nice bit of rain around here. The garden is going like crazy!! The corn is doing great. The tomatoes are growing nicely. The cucumber plants are just now starting to produce cucumbers. The beans.....well,......the beans are all gone. We put up a fence to keep deer and Jack (our St. Bernard) out of the garden. But, the fence does not keep out rabbits. Those little buggers have destroyed our beans. It's like a playground with snacks for them in there. They know that Jack can't get in there and get to them, so I think they moved in. I bet they even sit on the other side of the fence and taunt him. "You can't get us!!!" I bet they even stick out their little rabbit tongues at him. I'm tempted to let him in there just to get even with them for eating my beans. I hope they leave my beats and turnips alone when I plant them for fall. If not, we might be having rabbit stew REALLY soon.
In other news, I just found out today, that Phelan will be planning on moving here in 3 weeks. 3 WEEKS!!! Yay!!! Let the mischief begin!! hehehe. I'm actually gonna have stuff to write about on here. I'm sure you guys are getting bored with the every day stuff. I love to see people experience things for the first time. Things that I've gotten use to. It's like I'm seeing it for the first time again. Makes me appreciate what I have.
Well, I guess that's enough for now.
So until next time,
Small Farm Girl, water lover.
