A garden is the best alternative therapy.

Ahhhhhh … rain …

We're enjoying a weird northwesterly spin of precipitation, so that cell East of Austin is headed our way!

We're enjoying a weird northwesterly spin of precipitation, so that cell East of Austin is headed our way!

Everyone living here in central Texas is relieved that we have finally received a good bit of rain – and not only that, a promise of continued showers at least for the next couple of days and a likelihood of storms for two or three days after that.     We’ve been in a record drought for the entirety of the summer.  Our lawn turned to hay after we stopped watering it to conserve water.   It’s been absolutely terrible.  I’ve never wanted to move north more than the past few months!  In fact, I’ve been aching for a good ole’ fashioned mid-western snowstorm.  I’m sure the garden is loving the natural watering and the new sprouts are really getting a good soaking, which has already increased their size dramatically today.   There are a few beans that are struggling.  They’re much smaller than the others.  And then there’s one zucchini that’s a little tiny as well.  Hopefully this rain will help them get everything they need from the great, nutritious soil I’ve prepared for them!
