I'm having a complete meltdown tonight! I'm overwhelmed and behind and tired of relying on other people!
My garden needs to be tilled. It is hard clay and totally unplantable. My neighbor said he'd do it when he did his, but then his house burned down. So my other neighbor said he'd do it when he did his. This was a month ago. I needed to get things in the ground weeks ago. I have asparagus that I ordered that came and is sitting in pots. I built a raised bed to plant it in, but it needs a lot of dirt to fill it.
I need a pick up truck load of dirt for the asparagus bed and the onion bed, but we don't have a truck. So I'll need to borrow a truck and I'm tired of borrowing the neighbor's truck! Did I mention I had onions that need planting? I do and strawberries. Plus all the seeds that need to get in the ground. All my brocolli went from small to flowering overnight, so no brocolli for us this spring. The peas got too cold when it snowed and now it is too hot, so we probably won't get any peas either. And Mark mowed over all my blackberries. I feel like a complete gardening failure and want to go back to doing everything in pots.
We got ducklings but the heat lamp we got is too big and it is too hot in their pen. I need a smaller bulb but can't get one until Monday because Logan has poultry judging practice ALL day tomorrow and I have to go to a pet store because the feed store only has the big bulbs. The house is a mess and I'm not sure when I'm going to clean it.
Sweat Pea doesn't like Aurora and is always going after her. I've gotten in the way a few times and been gouged with her horns. And it hurts! I have to lock them all in the stall together at night because of the coyotes, but we only have 1 stall right now so I know that is stressful for them. I have no idea what kind of guardian animal I want, none of them are ideal.
Orion keeps getting out of the fence and eating the apple tree. I keep plugging the holes he finds, but he keeps finding new ones.
I have to take the sheep to be sheared in a few weeks, but I don't have a transport cage or a truck. I'm planning to make a transport cage out of goat panels, but I have no way to get them home without borrowing a truck. We are supposed to be getting my dad's old truck, but Mark has to fly up there and get it sometime. Who knows when that will be. I need a truck!
Mark is out of town backpacking, but I can't go anywhere because I'm milking twice a day. I really need a break from Logan who has spring fever bad and is driving me crazy! Everytime we are outside he throws things at me and thinks it is hilarious. The wind threw Logan's trampoline across the yard. Luckily, we were able to fix it but it has no net right now because the poles got bent and we need to bend them back.
And I want a pygora goat but no one breeds them anywhere near here.
Anyway, I'll be fine tomorrow, just taking my turn for a meltdown tonight.
