Several people in our little town had a long night last night. I went to town today and checked out some places. Wow. There's a lot of water around here. Everyone I talked to though was thankful. Thankful it wasn't worse than it was. It can always be worse. We didn't have a tornado. Still got to sleep in our own beds. No one lost their life.
As I was walking around my yard this afternoon I was feeling pretty good. Everything is muddy or covered with mud but it was still there.
This is what happened next. I looked at this:
My integrity as a gardener has been reinstated. Yes. It really has. It was in considerable question. You know, asparagus roots flapping in the wind for almost 3 weeks. Then my mother-in-law so kindly telling me I needed to cover the roots. Covering the roots and then waking up in the middle of the night realizing the asparagus was actually planted upsidedown and then replanting them again. All that might have been reasonable doubt of gardening skill. I'm just telling you it was my technique. That's what it was alright.
I think I even said in a previous post that I was just going to let that asparagus sit for awhile and see what happens. They needed more rain to rejuvenate the roots. WOW. I can't believe I said that.
Actually, wow, I can't believe that happened!
The beans still look like this. That's okay. Cause that means they didn't float away either. I'm not sure it could look any rosier right now. I have asparagus shoots and Country Boy has beans. (He might be full of beans too but I'm not going to tell him that. ha) I really did think I was delirious earlier. I thought I was seeing things. Not enough sleep does that to a person. So I went out and looked at them again. They're still there.
