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.

Wow, that's a beautiful garden! I love how you're using the rain barrel. Any pictures of what it looked like at the height of harvest?

I wanted to stop by and wish you a Merry Christmas and Happy New Year. I just found your Christmas menu comment (yum, yum!) stuck in moderation (boo, hiss!) The Kolaches sound amazing!

Howdy, I do think your site could possibly be having browser compatibility problems.
Whenever I take a look at your web site in Safari, it looks
fine however, if opening in IE, it has some overlapping issues.
I just wanted to provide you with a quick heads up! Besides
that, excellent blog!
