The weather, as predicted, was miserable all day today. It was windy and rainy with temps never reaching 60, a bit cool for August.
I stayed in my pajamas all day getting several things done for the website. We're finalizing everything so we can open registration for the 2016 RV-Dreams Spring Educational Rally in Tennessee.
We've also been gearing up for the 2015 RV-Dreams Fall Educational Rally in Michigan in October. It's just around the corner. We now have less than a month before we close registration. As expected, it will be small with 50 - 60 people.
Linda made a crockpot of chili to get us through the next few chilly days.
That's about it for today.
This morning started out very cool again. It was overcast and the garden was muddy, but we needed to pick vegetables.
We picked 8 five-gallon buckets of cucumbers. We put them in gunny sacks, and I had to get the tractor to haul them to the barn.
Linda picked a couple of pecks of tomatoes, and we picked a five-gallon bucket of peppers.
Of course, there was more zucchini, and we picked five more gallons of green beans. That's about all the green beans for the season. Tina asked us to hold off on cantaloupes and cabbage, but there a few of those that need to be picked. Also, the first eggplant is almost ready.
After spending the morning in the garden, Linda used the push trimmer around the farm while I went back to the other field down the road. I had to start out with my fleece shirt and ear covers, but it eventually warmed up and turned into a pretty afternoon.
It was a good thing I cut the low-lying areas on Tuesday as I would have gotten stuck today after yesterday's deluge. I finished cutting all of the field that can be plowed and planted, and I got most of the edges mowed. I'm just about ready for the next project.
We have now been here two months of our three-month stint. The time has flown by, and I haven't gotten anxious to leave at all. I'm just now starting to get little twinges of "hitch itch". But this last month will go quickly.
As I've said before, two months of workamping is about perfect for me. Three months is pretty good. At the end of three months, I'm definitely ready to move on. We've done three two-month jobs, two four-month jobs, one four-and-half month job, and one five-month job.
The five month job included all the free golf we could play, but I was way over that perk by the end. :) That one even pushed Linda's outer limit for staying put (mostly because there really wasn't anything interesting to do in the area, but also because the job was sort of haphazard never really knowing what we would be doing from day-to-day and working an hour here, a couple hours there, etc.).
Anyway, this job has been pretty good for us. And Steve said they will hire a Workamper to do it again next year. At the end of our time, I'll write up a full review with all the pros and cons.
So, that's it for now. We don't have any big plans for the next few days, so it will likely be more of the same. For sure, we'll get the 2016 Spring Rally registration opened, and I hope to get some additional RV-related info posted to boost the boring farm work entries. :)
