Driving around last evening between my house and my mothers in New Windsor it is quite evident much more rain is needed. Ponds are still low, streams hardly flowing.  It'll take time, at least the grass is greening up again.

yeah, I just looked at the latest drought monitor and was surprised that there wasnt more improvement from the most recent rains.

A good start, but still lots of work to be done. It's worth noting that the drought monitor is valid as of 12z on the 6th, so most of Tuesday's rain (and beyond) wasn't factored-in.

I've got stuff that spent all summer languishing going to seed today, pepper plants that haven't produced a pepper in weeks are filled with dozens today and some are already an inch or more long and seeds that didn't sprout all year are popping now. Weird shit... 

You doing any fall planting? I think I'm ready to plant some vetch and put it all to bed for the winter. It was a long, tough, but productive season.

Not sure how you survived this long without a constant supply of kale and parsnips :o

 

Parsnips were the stereotypical food my father kept trying to get me to eat with him as a kid. I refuse to have them in my house lol

Yup. I put in some turnips, parsnips and another round of dill and cilantro. I'll probably add a few more herbs, should also add some leafy greens and garlic goes in early next month. I think it's too late for them to bear fruit but I also have tomatoes going crazy from the little stumps I had left.

.85 overnight, along with a clap of thunder that woke us up. 

Good morning Rob. Ref; NOAA/NWS CPK total overnight .95. For the time beginning 12:51 pm yesterday 1.54. I leave the barred yard windows open during the night. I figured something happened when while walking to the head I wondered who was nice enough to wash the kitchen floor in the middle of the night. Stay well, as always …..
