Summer Rush, Part I
A multiple part post tonight. First, thanks to The Farmwife for her thoughts on my last post. If you are a regular reader of these blogs, I suggest that you check out thefarmwife.com.

Again, I am surprised that I haven't used this topic title before. It is at this time of year that the tasks mount up. There was a short lull after the May Mania, but now the gardens have to be hoed and cultivated, the grass cut, and the flower beds weeded. In addition, the Summer harvest has started and every other day strawberries must be picked and lettuce and spinach cut. As I've posted on "The Farmwife" website, every corner I turn reveals a new job as I try to finish the one I'm doing. On Sunday, (the day of rest) I needed to catch up on the mowing. Once I started to do that, I noticed the lawn mower was sputtering, even though I had put in a new spark plug. As I searched the garage for a container with which to clean the air filter of the lawn mower, I came across the flower spray that I would need to dose the rose bush in order to keep the darn rose bugs at bay. I then mentally added that job to my "to do" list as I searched out the gas and oil I needed to clean the filter. I used the bare minimum of both for the task and as I poured the ounce or two of petroleum products on the ragweed in the middle of my driveway it occurred to me that I have to spray Roundup on the rest of the driveway weeds and on those that are growing in the sidewalk of the homestead. As the sun set on Sunday, the rose bush had been sprayed, but the lawn mower was still sputtering. Please scroll up for Part II, -- Gary
