Sloshing through the mud

We woke this morning with the dogs barking furiously....they had cornered one of our horses "Sunshine" who had managed to escape from his 20 acre pasture... again! While we were sloshing threw the mud catching the horse, a wild turkey crossed our path. Twenty years ago there were herds of hundreds of wild turkeys in our area. Now you are lucky to see one or two. I guess this is our lucky day, "Sunshine" never made it to our garden.

Today the grass really is greener on the other side. We have had over 4 inches of rain the last couple of days. Our fingers are crossed that all the seed we planted yesterday have not washed away (Hill Country Heirloom Red Okra, Cow Horn Okra, Cajun Jewel Okra, Patty Pan Squash, Opal Basil, Zephyr Squash, Easter Egg Radish, D'avignon Radish and more edible Calendula Flowers).
