The rain came down so hard in the middle of the night I laid in bed wondering if the garden was going to be there this morning. Happy to report it is and doesn't seem to have suffered any real damage. Everything is still upright and looking thankful for the good drink of water. But our day has remained overcast (also hot and muggy --- yuck!) so I've not been able to do any garden work today. Just too wet!
I have found things indoors to keep me busy, if you can imagine such a thing.
Our very first two little zucchinis sacrificed themselves to the betterment of the pot of Vegetable Beef Soup I made. Hubby says the smell has been tempting his taste buds all day so it should go over well for dinner with a slice of rye bread and butter.
Thanks to Anna I'm ready with a new Zucchini Bread recipe to try this year. So bring 'em on, I'm ready to use 'em up as soon as they appear. (Ha! Can anyone EVER keep up with the production from even two zucchini plants?)
These delphiniums were casualties of the storm last night. Sure makes a lovely flower arrangement for inside though.
There are more ripe strawberries to pick but it's remained way too wet today to go crawl around in the patch. I'm hoping for a clear day tomorrow with a lot less humidity to get them under control again.
