We're getting a light drizzle of rain at this moment and I'm happy to
see it. If the weather heads are correct this should go on the rest of
the week. It's been awhile since we had a decent soaking rain. A couple
of down pours hit us about five minutes on a couple of days this past
week and that helped some but a good drizzle is much better.
Gardens are doing their job, picking tomatoes, cukes, sweet chilies,
bunching onions and the kumquat tree is full of flowers. The spring
lettuce is going crazy and will be pulled and composted soon. The squash
in our garden is blooming but no fruit as yet. May not be any
pollinators around just yet.
Grass needs mowing front and back but it's to wet to do so at this time.
Spent a little time pulling weeds and other things out of the grass in
the back, the front yard had turned mostly brown due to lack of rain but
appears to be perking up now.
Pear tree is looking good and we have discovered at least three fruit on
it after it was defoliated by the January freezes. That's okay as we had
a bumper crop last year.
