  • We actually managed an entire day (so far) without rain, so I thought I would give you a brief update on the garden. Unfortunately, the grass is still too wet to mow and the next two days are supposed to rain again, so the yard will resemble some of the wheat fields I've seen driving through Iowa. But as you can see, the plants have been enjoying the rain.


    A little Louis Armstrong to make the day pleasant for you.
