This morning, I woke to the sound of a light rain. I was so excited! I honestly didn’t expect the predicted rain to hit us.
Of course, by the time I went out to do my morning rounds, it had pretty much stopped. Which I suppose was good, since switching out memory cards on the trail cams in the rain isn’t really a good thing. 😀
While checking on the garden beds, I was quite thrilled to see this.
The baby luffa gourd’s blossom is opening!
So far, it’s still the only gourd I’m seeing developing.
Check out that orange colour in the background. The Red Kuri squash is ripening up nicely!
While I was out and about, it did start to rain a bit, and I decided to do a quick check of the gravel pit dugout.
There is so little water left in there, form the last time it rained. No doubt, the renter is still needing to bring water to his cattle here.
The rain has continued, and even gotten heavier, throughout the day. If the forecasts are accurate, it will continue to rain all through tomorrow, too, with a 100% chance of thunderstorms overnight. I’m even getting a weather warning on my desktop app I’ve never seen before. “Overland Flow Flood.” It’s for our region, but at rivers that are not anywhere near us. We have no rivers near us. Not even creeks.
The rain is still desperately needed, and it looks like even the areas where the most wildfires are will finally get some rain.
