rain in the desert
We have had lots of rain (well, over an inch spread over three days). The rain barrel is overflowing, as are assorted vessels Dan stacked about. And, most suprisingly we have developed a pond. Wonder *exactly* how long it will last?
Most of the seeds I planted 2 weeks ago haven't sprouted yet. I think it may have been a bit chilly for them? I have hopes they will still sprout, if not I will be replanting. Its sort of spotty the way they've come up or not. Three or four corn plants have come up while most haven't. Two of six cucumbers. No beans, but watermelons up.
However, the tomatoes are growing happily. They found the miracle gro to be inspirational. The winds are dying down now, and that helps too.
