Now come the Dog Days as they are called. They are named for the dog star Sirius. They are from 7/3 to 8/11. They are visible with the rising sun and the supposed start of the hot days to come. The only Dog Days our farm see are the two “pups” Diesel and Buddy chasing after something or stealing a bone or stick from each other. Or chasing the neighborhood cat! I hope by now all the neighbors know not to let their pet cats out as our “pups” will be sure to ruin the cat’s day. Well, more rain last night for us! When will it slow down or stop? It sure makes growing veggies, hay, corn and tobacco a real test.
