When the Rain Came Tumblin’ Down


It’s been raining here every day. EVERY DAY.
Even if I do have to wipe off my camera lens between every photo because it’s so humid, the lens fogs up in seconds.
Though it does lend a magical mysterious ambiance to the garden. But it’s no mystery what the rain is doing! My tomatoes are blooming! And so are the bush beans.
I even have baby green beans dangling down!
They taunt me with dreams of a big pot of green beans with bacon.
The squash and zucchini are also blooming away! And the cucumbers have gone darn crazy.
I wasn’t sure how my secret side garden from the studio would do. It’s not in full sun. But–it’s doing great, and the constant rain is working miracles. I can’t wait for a pot of beans. And a big sliced fresh tomato. And squash casserole. And fried squash blossoms!

    What a beautiful, beautiful garden!

    I live in a city, so have a very tiny yard. But, we have lots of herbs growing: Parsley, basil, thai basil, thyme, marjoram, rosemary, and mint. And we have Tuscano kale and Siberian kale growing and soon big enough to harvest. Can’t wait!

    We have had so much rain here, it is unbeleivable! The temps are up, so hot and steamy, it is like living in the tropics, things are growing overnight, we have peppers and tomatoes,they are tiny, but it is wondeful to see them after such a long hard winter. I would like to see a bit of cooler drier mornings, I miss sitting on the porch in the mornings.

    Well summer is well away here in north Texas, but we’ve had a ton of rain here in the last month. The Red River (separating Texas from Oklahoma) was almost lapping over I-35 which is a major route out of Texas to the north. Would be quite the event if they had to close the highway. I’m not gardening except for my fine crop of weeds, but most of those are pretty.
