Sun Lovers

This sunflower seems to ignore the fact that it hasn't rained in about 4 weeks. But just when I thought all was lost it rained. Well not really lost just withered a lot. The sweet corn tasseling right next to it is almost lying flat from the previous storm which blew sideways and left everyone without electric for days, some for over a week. I think it will be pig and goat food. We planted a second crop of bi-colored corn that should make it if we get rain now and then. At least watering the garden can be put on hold for awhile. ON an upbeat note, the tomatoes are starting to ripen.

  1. We got 2.4" on Wednesday evening (and lost power from 5PM to after midnight. Then Sunday, we got 1.4". The lawn is actually starting to grow a bit. Hope we continue to get weekly rains.
