And this evening as I said good night to the chickens I could hear the deep, distant sonorous sounds of thunder. There is a chance rain could come tonight once again.
Despite the drought, the vegetable garden and orchard are doing remarkably well.

While Jerome was up here this past weekend we were able to get the blueberries planted. They went in the new fruit bed we cleared parallel to the vegetable bed, in line with the raspberries. We were able to mulch them with some of the mulch we made with the trimmed branches and dead trees we had been collecting since we bought the farm.
A few other joys in the garden right now:
a nearly ripe peach which no wildlife has noticed so far
and jasmine on the back porch.
Beauty, bounty, blessings.
