GARDEN IS IN!!! Every bit of it is planted except, of course, for sweet potatoes. It looks beautiful!! Oh, I know you really can't see too much, other than the tomatoes, eggplant and peppers but I know it's there in those long beautiful rows and the garden will have a completely different look in another 6 weeks. Now begins the hoeing!!
UPDATE: Missi is still with us and is definitely better. We noticed that her leg was slightly swollen so we continue to give her a little bute to keep the pain down so she would stay mobile and able to eat. I've noticed that only occasionally is she having leg spasms. But the biggest, wonderful occurrence was this last time when I tried to give her the bute. First, evidently, bute tastes terrible, at least it is rather obvious by the way horses react when you give the paste to them. They behave like little kids, kind of gag and hang their tongue out and I'm sure I hear them saying yuk, yuk, yuk!! Well, when I went to give her this last dose, she had my number. She raised her head, back up and turned. She wasn't having anymore of that yukky stuff!! It was actually kind of cute. This told me that she was feeling a great deal better and now I feel like I don't have to worry quite as much. But I will tell you this - I would certainly like to know what in the world she did out in the field to hurt herself. You've got to understand there's just very little she could have gotten into so it really is a wonder . . . but she's better and to me, that's all that matters. I truly was afraid she wouldn't make it. But now I think she's going to be just fine.
We had more company tonight so we haven't gotten a whole lot more accomplished but we have truly enjoyed our evening. The weather was accommodating and the company was enjoyable. I think tomorrow we will finally begin to slow down around here. I'm not sure I can stand it!!!
