Mt. Zion had a much-needed rain in some places more than others. The corn is tasseling; looking forward to fresh corn. Blackberries are starting to ripen, the soybeans have grown until they are a solid mass of green. The roadside wildflowers are still pretty.
Hope everyone had a safe Fourth of July.

Over at the Robin Siegismund Farm, things are not running as smoothly as normal. Robin had to use her teacher’s voice when lecturing Belle on barking and having a temper fit when she had to crawl under the deck, which is Belle’s private spot, to replace the air conditioner drain hose twice in one day. Belle had a temper fit, “Robin could understand why Belle liked her spot it was cool and a nice breeze under there and Belle didn’t have to share her space with Petey and Speck, but I will go there when needed” Belle said she understood and thankful Robin didn’t take her treats away.
Brenda Peterson visited Howard Peterson over the Fourth of July weekend.
