Finally, some rain in Kansas

This year has been a lot better for moisture, at least in Kansas which has been plagued by drought for a few years. We had a loooooonnnnggg winter with a fair bit of moisture. And yesterday, here at home, we got somewhere upwards of 3 inches. It rained and rained and rained.

It was much needed, but unfortunately a baby cucumber plant bit the dust in the process. I only had two coming up from the seeds I saved from last year and the other one, the one that might make it, is pretty gimpy! His leaves got stuck in the seed and I had to pry them out. Sigh. My gardening adventures are becoming exhausting already.

But anyway, lots of rain here. I collect it in a big wash tub and save as much as I can for future garden watering. Here's an idea how much we got.
