[gardeners] Friday, almost in the garden

I'm sitting at the computer listening to a nice rain fall as a cold front moves
into SW Louisiana. Unfortunately I didn't get to finish putting the fall garden
in this morning. We worked on it until after dark yesterday but still haven't
planted a number of things including six more cabbage plants.

Probably could have gotten done with it this morning as the rain didn't start
until about 1145 to 1200. I don't really know as I was asleep. Had a
hypoglycemic episode at about 0200 this morning and I always feel like hell for
a day afterward. Did get back to sleep about 1030 and woke up about 1230 so am
feeling a little better. The rain may stop before dark thirty and give me a
chance to get the cabbage in at least. The other stuff, seeds all, can wait
another day.

Miz Anne is adjusting to being a full-time school teacher and is coming home
smiling again. She's worked the last three days without a voice as a chest cold
settled into laryngitis. Don't know how she controls those little heatherns
without a voice though. B-)

Oh well, back to watching and listening to the rain. It's been so long since we
had a nice rain it's sorta fascinating.
