Weeding in the Rain and a new Lawn Mower

This is a busy time around the farm and the crew has been doing a superb job getting things in order.  We’ve been having considerable rain and with that comes considerable growth.  Unfortunately, that also means the growth of weeds.  On one such rainy day, the crew donned their rain slickers and set out to week the lily bed.  Rain is actually a good time to pull weeds as their roots release from the soil quite easily.  I’ve also included some photos that were taken when the rain ended and the sun came out.  And, considering this is a farm blog, Dominick, my equipment manager, drove to White Plains, New York to pick up a new lawn mower from Argento & Sons.
