This is a journal of my vegetable gardens. Skippy was my first dog and he thought the garden was his, even though I did all the work. But Skippy always stood by me and was a great friend. Now Suzie and Charley follow in his footsteps and garden with me. We're located near Boston (USDA zone 6A). I have a community plot, a backyard vegetable garden, fruit trees and berry bushes, chickens and bees. I use sustainable organic methods and do my best to grow all of my family's vegetables myself.

rain!

rain guage

Its been so dry, but the past two days brought 2 full inches of rain. I weeded well before this, but today the weeds are already thick! Amazing how fast they grow. It will give me a nice day of garden work tomorrow.

Thank goodness we finally got rain. I was thinking it would never happen. It looks like you got about 1/2" more than I did in Winchester.

I always get annoyed that when the world is watching England during Wimbledon fortnight.. we always get heavy rain!! I wish we got more rain the rest of the time because it's usually quite dry here in Summer!

After a very dry spring we just got over 2 inches in a few hours. Luckily it was just a good solid downpour. So, I am guessing that I don't need to water for a few days. More is expected. Let's hope that we don't get bad storms since we are in the same pattern that just clobbered the western midwest.
