Re: Rain

We got a real good shower today, too. It's been raining on Tuesday afternoons lately. Unfortunately, I got carried away with pulling out box elder trees and didn't get the yard mowed. :o( I'm hopeful it will dry enough by tomorrow afternoon to get it done then. I'm also having a really good time pulling out golden rods from among the phlox.

Two showers today, but taken together, less than a half inch of water. Of course, if we could get that every day, it would be nice. I wouldn't have to worry about watering the stuff in pots and hanging baskets.

And speaking of hanging baskets, I noticed today that our Garten Perle cherry tomato has about a dozen green fruits. This is one T&M recommended for hanging baskets, so it looks like they were right although the plant is a bit rangy at this point. Maybe it will get droopy as it gets bigger.
