Sunday Reading - Still At It
I know the blog hasn't been very exciting lately and I haven't been replying to comments like I should. The truth is, and I know I have written this 1 million times already, I am just literally buried under grass and weeds. I cannot keep up with it and it's growing so thick so fast it is really putting the hurt on my equipment as well. I already ended up stretching out a belt when the mower clogged again this week.
They sure don't make belts and stuff like they used to either.
Not to mention with very few breaks from the heat and evil humidity I am just beat by the time I get finished for the day. Been the worst Summer I can ever remember for trying to get anything done. It's a good thing I didn't try and plant a real garden this year because if I had it would be totally overgrown as well by now.
The worst part is the grass never actually dries enough to properly mow. It's just so wet down under that you physically cannot mow slow enough to cut properly and always risk getting clogged up. For the first time in years I have also had to break out the gas powered weed eaters as well because the battery operated ones I have grown to love so much just can't cut it now...
Even riding around on a tractor or mower requires frequent cooling and drying off breaks. It's like living in a terrarium or something.
Anyway enough of my complaining I guess. Time to get back to work if I expect to get this mowing done before nightfall. This constant rain and humidity has to come to an end sometime I guess. I heard this morning that Kansas City is getting pounded extra hard today and the streets are flooding now.
I guess it could be worse than what we got.
Keep Prepping Everyone!!!!!!
