The weather hasn’t permitted us to do much around here, but we did harness and drive the mules briefly yesterday. I think they were grateful for something to do, so they ignored my inept driving. I planned to hitch them again today, but we had another heavy rain and the place is a sea of mud.

Sun’s out, at least. Maybe I’ll plant a few more apple trees. We drove to Reidsville yesterday and picked up another twenty-five rust-resistant varieties.

In about three years,  if you find youself short of apples,  give me a call.
