Nature, taking its course.

Once again, almost a week has gone by with several cloudy days and the smell of rain showers in the air, but nary a drop of rain falling anywhere near here.  Many many places in Canada, including the prairie are having water problems of an excess nature, but we are having a drought.  

So today I am off to the farm, water jugs in hand, a a few good ideas to make the task of watering the beast of a garden just a little easier.  I also will be planting the cabbage, cauliflower and tomatoes today.  It might yet freeze and they will have no shelter, but at some point you just have to get on with it, plant them and let nature take its course.  If nature decides you are not going to have tomatoes, well, there it is.

Damn the torpedoes and full speed ahead.
