It gets no fresher than this. Its swiss chard, three or four kinds of lettuce, green beans, peas, snow peas, dill, spinach, and fresh green onion tops. And there's more growing outside. Could be a few things I missed in the list. But its all fresh from the garden.
Okay, the rain came in at 1.45 inches last night, and .14 today. So just over 1-1/2 inches of rain. We have happy plants. Though we do have corn that is blown over. So we did get wind with the rain last night. But we should be clear skies the next couple of nights. Then we just might get rain again this weekend. We'll see.
Weather had said we would get rain. We've been waiting all day for it. at about 10:30 pm it finally arrived. In the 15 minutes or so its been raining, less than half an hour, we've had over 1.25 inches of rain and it is still coming down outside. We'll see what it shows in the morning. But we finally got rain.
