My Name is Mud

To say that there has been a bit too much rain in Northeast Ohio might be a SMALL understatement. Rain has become a tad annoying. For example.............

........some areas in the garden have sink-holes. I was pulling out some of the many weeds that are growing like crazy (unlike my tomato plants which are swimming) and my feet sunken into the ground. My poor zucchini plant could be the next victim. Now the only advantage to this mud on my feet is that my feet, legs, and arms are covered in poison ivy and it feels good and takes the itch away. Poison ivy one might ask? Well at the age of 42 I was weed wacking "stuff" and that "stuff" sprayed back all over me and since I did not rinse off right away.......well, the rest is itchy history.

I forgot to buy beans this year but I found a packet of bean seeds from last year in the barn so I just thought I'd give them a try. Bless their little bean hearts! They just seeded their little selves in all the rain and mud!! I really hate wearing shoes in the summer and prefer to barefoot it most of the time around the yard and barn; hence some of my "personal issues" that I take on.

ReRun: "Don't even say my name is Mud because I am the good beagle unlike that other one you have. But hey, you really should do something about all of these weeds."

Well Kristi, don't feel bad. This 47 year old is just getting over her first bout of poison ivy of the year. I can just look at it and I swear it jumps on me. And rain?? Yep - things here in northeastern Indiana have been the same: soggy, humid and very weedy. :( I didn't realize you have beagles - I love beagles! I had to put my 14 year old Barney down a few years ago. They still hold a special place in my heart....and much to hubby's dismay lol....we will have another one some day. :)
