It finally happened, last weekend the sky opened up and rain belted down like blessings from the gods. Mid-drought we all bowed in acknowledgement of this precious gift, including the garden.
Prior to this downfall/windfall I’ve been obsessed with getting my garden to produce (flourish seems like asking too much) despite the lack of rain and water resources.
As the rain pelted down, the girls helped me set out flower buckets all over the yard to collect water to use in the garden after the storm passed. Even in the chicken coop, a watering bucket caught drips from the drain.
While we won’t go chasing waterfalls anytime soon, we’re thankful to soak up every last drop and pray for more. I’ve been optimistically watching the garden hoping it will get to work and help me get dinner on the table.
How is your garden faring these days?
