Boy, what a great time of anticipation for us in the rainy Northwest. We have maximum faith that summer will really come after all. There is an old joke that says that summer starts July 5th around here. Man, we have had our share of moisture and clouds. So any second now!
Catherine my Mass partner came today so we could have our worship service. We are doing great with this by the way. But “real” church calls and we will be there soon. Maybe we will have two more sessions here at the ranch and then try and go back. We both miss Communion which we can’t duplicate.
Each time that Catherine and I get together we work on a set of mysteries. To my knowledge there are four sets and today we were discussing the Luminous Mysteries which are my favorite. Forgive me if I talked about these before. They are forever new to me.
And in the corn news I did take some pics several days ago. And you all need a progress report as we approach the Fourth. The old adage of “knee high by the Fourth of July” is always in play. It is a special challenge this year here with all the rain and cold. Not as red hot as normal but we are close. It was boot high Friday and a week to go.
Maybe I will include a pic from last year because I am trying something new and you can see. Up to this year I was trying to keep the whole plot clear of weeds. Well that works to a certain point where it just gets overwhelming and I say good enough, “Corn you are on your own.” This year I seeded the whole plot with New Zealand White clover directly after the corn went in the ground. This was an attempt at forming a “green mulch”or living mat to keep the weeds down. So you will see what that looks like.
Well, I think that is it for a Sunday late in June in the time of the pandemic. Sincerely hope that you are holding up under the strain of all this these days. Thanks for checking in.
extremely corny loves, Felipé.
