I'ts been over a week since it rained here. The garden is getting dry and it's supose to hit 90 today. Gusee I'll have to pick up some hose on the way home and water the garden. Not something we often do here in Iowa.

You are more then welcome to have some of our wet weather also. Hopefully everything works out for ya and you get some rain soon. I know it isn't fun watering the garden even if you are on a well.

JD, I know what you mean. We have not had any rain in almost 2 months. I think this has been the driest year we have had in several years.

It's such a period of extremes the last few years. Dry as a bone in one place, then a few hundred miles away....record setting rains. I'm betting this will last a few years before settling back to more average precip.

I do believe it runs in cycles. They are predicting rain Wed,Thurs & Friday.
I am watering tonight and will see how it is tomorrow.
I won't get the RAsberries & blackberries tonight so they will definately get a drink tomorrow.
I'ts all new plantings and I have too much invested to lose them right off to bat.

I am waiting for the ground to dry up so I can plant. I would send you some of what we had but my mental powers are not as strong as they used to be.

Finally got a break! We have gentle showers in Des Moines this morning!! And Rain prediced every day for the next 4 days.
I watered the last two evenings and most of the garden will recover.

The 75 Strawberries planted Saturday do not look good at all.
It will take a miracle for them to recover.
Hedged my bet and ordered 75 more last night.
If the ones planted make it, great and 150 plants is not excessive.
I don't think you can have too many strawberries.
