Finally rain!

After a very dry spring, this heavy rain is very welcome. It makes for a muddy harvest...

... but the plants are loving it! Everything glows in shades of green. Tonight a thick fog settled over the fields as I closed up for the night, after a full day planting winter squash, eggplants, zucchinis, carrots, beets, and tomatoes. Another good rain is coming tomorrow to water them all in. No irrigation needed these days-- one chore lifted from my workload. I am trying not to look at the weeds that are growing 10x as fast now. Apparently weeds don't take days off.
