    Tilling in still too wet soil, and the wife did some covert ops and took pics of me working it in my pajamas. LOL It was kind of almost dry enough and there was more rain coming in about a hour or two, so I hit it in house slippers and jammies and was out there killing it looking like a walmart shopper.

    New virgin garden I made this year. A 120x300' area that used to be my incoming cattle quarantine pen. So 12 years of being well fertilized and clay turned into a nice 10" deep black dirt garden. I had to cut down around a dozen hickory and post oaks to get the light up to 75%-80% on the light meter for 9 hours per day. But I am well stocked on hickory smoking wood now and got some nice 50-60 foot long, 30"-40" diameter post oak logs to run through the saw mill.

    The main fields and gardens are still swamps but hey I at least have couple hundred tomato and pepper plants in the ground and 50 each zucchini, yellow squash and cucumber plants growing. Fast heading to taking no plant on the corn field or doing back to back beans.

    Just a muddy, swampy, wet SUCK year so far here on the T5R........... Even the hogs are getting sick of the mud!

    covered up some of the planting areas to dry them off a bit - damn rain won't give much of a break - what did get planted in the last 2 weeks is going great - plenty of rain and just enough sun to make the plants happy ....

    I must say there is much less chaffing in the Jammies than in jeans :)
