Gentle summer rain

After all the heat we finally got some gentle summer rain today. We as humans are never happy. First we complain about too much rain then we get some drying and complain. But the showers today were a welcome relief from the heat and humidity of the past few days. And am sure the garden veggies were standing up waving, yelling "over here, over here".
Just had to go take a walk through the garden before the shower and it looks good, just seems to be growing slow. Or maybe its just me in a hurry. We have had to treat our potatoes for potato beetles and we seem to have made a little progress. After the showers are over may need to spray again to finish them off. Maybe next week we will be able to pick and can some mustard and turnip greens. And the beets wont be far behind, they are getting to be good size for pickled beets.
So till next time, blessings from the McGuire homestead.
