Got a good rain, but a lot of it in a single downpour. 1 1/2" + rain. Had some hail too, and it pretty much destroyed the squash plants, but worth the loss to get the rain.
VERY happy to get the rain!

Getting a thunderstorm at the moment. Will be HOT and HUMID later. YUK! But the garden is happy. Probably have to mow this weekend. Seat time finally.

We had right around 4" over the weekend. The garden looks to be handling it well, we had some wind with it that has the broccoli leaning a little. I need to do some driveway work.

Same here Chuck, close to 4" total. My garden fared very well too. Was expecting to find everything plastered to the ground, but it looks good still! This rain will carry our corn till ear making time.

Must have got close to 3" of rain this morning, it has cleared off and is supose to hit 90 this afternoon.
I would not be surprized if the last sweet corn I planted a weekago Sunday will pop through today.

Dad wants to come out and plant a little patch of sweetcorn this week. I'm not sure if it will be too wet to till that for him?
