Too Much of a Good Thing

As you can see from previous posts, we had a lot of snow. Now we have a lot of water, everywhere. We literally cannot get out. We thought we could use our canoe, but found a skunk and a mink were living in it!!! I may want to get out, but not bad enough to fight a skunk for it...yet!

On the plus side, the plants that the FFA kids have started look WONDERFUL! When I can get over there, I think a pan of brownies are in order for those kids! About two weeks ago I had a crisis, basically freaking out that I had put all my preverbial eggs in their basket. No need for worry, the plants look great and healthy and not too big! The gardens are not under water and are drying out nicely. The potatoes should go in soon, but we may have to wait on them another week or two or three.

Here are some photos of our water problems:

This last photo is of a muskrat taunting me from across the water. He is sitting on a branch floating about a foot and a half above our road/driveway! I wonder if he's moved into the canoe-condo too??
