August rainfall in Puriscal

vine with flowers on tree in Puriscal, Costa Rica

 August rainfall on the property was a little under the average at 8.7" Less rain in August allowed me to cross the river in my boots a few times. Spencer liked that a lot. Recently, three hens went broody at the same time. Three is the limit for me so all of them were locked out of the coop (where the eggs are laid) for a few days. It will take a few weeks for their hormones to change and to begin laying eggs again. The second crop of corn is about one foot tall now. It was a quiet week, no exciting stories to tell. Pura Vida!
