Severe storms roared through the area last night dumping hard rain, strong winds and at times hail on our farm. The good news was that my little garden collection was snugly nestled up against the house on the front porch and not already in the garden. My tomatoes, peppers, additional onions cabbage, broccoli and basil are unharmed and ready to go back out in the sunshine awaiting their day to be set out in the big garden.
O Wise One and I have been working furiously to get the grass under control and keep it that way with all this rain. Many days both of us can be found riding one mower type or another or pushing a weed trimmer.
The good news is that this is producing lots of grass clippings for the compost piles.
And once it dries it provides mulch for the grape and blackberry arbors. The bad news is that this Monday morning it continues to rain off and on with rain also in the forecast for Thursday, Friday, Saturday, and next Sunday.
We did get all our downed tree branches from the last storm burned. Now we have a whole new batch : ) We also managed to get quite a bit of our garden planted during the few days of dry weather that we did have.
On the bright side of things I think our drought like conditions are over for the moment. I am hoping that it doesn't do like last year and just stop raining about June!
Is everyone else in the drought ridden areas getting plenty of rain?
