We have been without rain for a week and a half or so and when it is nearly 90 F. every day, things get a bit...cooked. We have had a good chance for rain for 2 days and it rained not a half mile from the house both days (I actually have gotten to see a rainbow each day too!) but no rain for us. This morning it got a little dark then sprinkled and I thought that might be all we would get. I got out there and made my discovery in the garden and got a few pictures. After coming in, however, things got good and dark and it is finally RAINING! Oh, it isn't pouring but it is a nice steady light rain that will give the garden a good water that it has been needing.
Speaking of gardening here is the pepper part:
I finally am going to have some fresh peppers to eat. I don't know if it is the raised beds or the variety, Jimmy Nardello, that did it but whatever it was, I am glad.
(The rain is stopping- a bit sooner than I had hoped but at least we got some this time.)
I guess that is the way gardening goes. Last year I got my first onions and radishes to grow. This year the onions did nothing and I only got a few radishes (different bed), but this year it looks like I will get peppers and squash which I didn't get last year. If I could just get a couple years together, I would be all set!
Here is a few more pictures. This is a cluster of tomatoes on one of the hanging basket tomatoes and the other is a bunch of blossoms on one of the larger tomatoes.
