Mud, Rain and No Sun

More rain. Again. I must be positive and think how awful the alternative, a drought, would be! I have several embroidery jobs to finish, and since field work is out of the question, it is a fine day to work in. Red cabbage is heading, summer squash is plumping, greens are leafier. An A-Frame trellis wears climbing muskmelons. Potatoes are bursting with floral fireworks and potato beetles. BUT....Rain gives repeat performances almost daily. What is a farmer to do??? I hope it will be dry tomorrow morning for harvesting.

The transplants are stuck in flats. Not good. Cloudy days make me drowsy, perhaps I'll take a"power nap". Sleep deprivation causes sewing errors so maybe a nap is justified.
