Finally Some Rain

We had about half-an-inch of rain a couple of days ago, but it did little to dampen the parched soil. My plan was to water the whole garden today, but we received over 2 inches of rain during the night, so I don’t need to go out and water. It’s a little too wet to weed, so I’ll do that tomorrow or Tuesday.

The rabbits ate a clump of Black-eyed Susans down to the ground, and are now starting to attack the okra. I will be re-planting the peppers and I guess I’ll need to do more fencing.

The past two days I was cleaned up the gardens along the back of the house. It took several hours to pull all of the dead flowers out of the chives, but that will make harvesting much easier. Toby helped.
