Rain! Blessed rain!

The garden got over 2" of rain yesterday in an all-day soaker like we haven't seen in almost a year of drought. The little seedlings are popping above the surface of the soil in celebration. Still no sign of potato vines, except the rogue sweet potatoes that just won't go away. It's too wet to work in the garden or flower beds today but this week looks like it will have time to dry out, so that's good.
With our Thanksgiving camping trip now in jeopardy we welcome this rain for that, too. Burn bans are in effect in nearly every county in Texas, including Polk County where we plan to camp in November. No campfires and no charcoal grills means no cooking and no s'mores by a warm fire at night. Come on more rain!
