The Garden

In my last post I talked about the water shortage here in Georgia. I saw a church sign about 3 weeks ago that said "Pray for rain, pray for the farmers". Well, it worked. For the last two weeks it has rained about 9 of the last 14 days. The grass that was turning brown, and the potted plants that couldn't be resussitated even with daily watering, are all flourishing. My husband has mowed the grass once, and was on the second mowing today when, what else, it rained.
We have already harvested cucumbers, squash, peppers, black eyed peas, and greenbeans. Our corn was knocked over by the wind in the last rain, but by the next morning had straightened itself up, reaching for the sun.
