My parents live on the farm that I grew up on. It is only 10 minutes from our house. We plant a huge garden out there (over an acre) every year. Although my 3 brothers and I are all married the garden is still a family thing. My younger brother and I both live within 10 minutes from the farm. We both still have keys to the house and it is like an extension of our own homes. We plant, harvest and can from the garden. We weed, help mow, take care of animals. Anything that my parents need we do. They are retired now so we spend even more time on the farm. So even though we live in a small town just a few minutes from my parents farm, my kids are learning to grow up on a farm just like I did. We still live the farm life!!
So anyway it is still raining and we are just sitting waiting for it to stop. We are farmers and we have things to do. At least the rain stopped long enough for me to pick violets for my violet jelly!!!
