Please Stop Raining
It has been raining for the past 5 days. And we're not talking about a pleasant gentle rain that quickly absorbs into the dry soil to nourish it with rainy goodness. No, we're talking torrential downpour that grudgingly pelts tender seedlings to the brink of death and leaves the roses to hang their heads in disgust.
At least we're no longer in a drought and my rain barrel is overflowing. On the downside, the eggplant are really ticked off to be bent toward the ground, their leaves covered in mud, and my soybeans keep getting washed out. Mother Nature - Do you know the meaning of the word "moderation?" Get a dictionary lady.
