We had just finished dinner tonight when the sky darkened, and the temperature dropped, and the wind picked up, thunder and lightning began, and it started to rain… no, rain mixed with hail! Bob took a quick picture of the hail stones covering the deck, and it is a good thing he acted quickly, because it melted almost immediately and ended quite soon. It was interesting while it lasted, though.
We worked on renewing the herb garden today, and I transplanted some herbs from one area to another. The rain was a timely helper. Finally got my cucumbers and zucchini planted, too, and the weeds pulled from the beets, the tomatoes tied to their stakes, and everything sprayed with Deer Stopper. Of course, the rain didn’t do that any good.
