Perfect Weather (for plants)

Today we had a full-day rainy soaker. Maybe not ideal for playing with the kids outside, but it was just what our plants needed--some deep watering for them to start settling in and extending those roots. And it'll be a big help to get all the seeds we planted full soaked. I stopped by the garden early this morning, and everything looked good and the soil hadn't washed away. Looks like we lost one Tatume seedling to stem breakage, but that's going to happen. I did see a rabbit on the other side of the fence, down the hill a bit. I hope he doesn't decide to wriggle under the fence and take a taste of our crop.

Tomorrow should be mostly sunny and warm--a good cycle for us. And no need to water tomorrow, after all the rain today.
