Rain coming for Middle Southerners

Post  Windmere on 6/23/2014, 8:22 am

Hi all my fellow Middle Southerners (and anyone else who is interested),

Nasty rains are predicted.  What, if anything, are you doing to prepare?  I'm dreading a fungus attack.

My daughter found the first hornworm of the season yesterday.  He was on one of my eggplants.  I guess summer truly has begun.

I will believe it when I see it actually coming down on my garden.  We have had thunder bumpers all around us and only 1/4 inch rain the last week.  I am tired of watering.

Ha ha yolos.  Yes it has just been that way.  However, Ken Cook has been making a fuss on channel 5 weather... so I'm bracing myself nonetheless.  .

We had a cell pass over us around 1:30, and we got a nice dousing.  Glad I held off on watering for today. 
.
However, with the hot weather we were having, I've had to at times water twice a day.  The reservoir on the EarthBoxes are sometimes bone dry by mid-day.  Tomatoes and peppers are sucking up water like a sponge.  On the positive side, the fruits are getting nice a plump (still green though).

When I got home from work today, I noticed we received about an inch of rain.  Yea.

Well, that was much ado about nothing for us...  as usual...

Seems like everything just moves around us up to within a mile or so.  But we're getting next to nothing.

My sister lives in Athens and the same thing happens there. She calls it living in a protective bubble. I told her to keep it watered and that just getting thunder and lightening nearby helps with nitrogen release. (A DH factoid. Hope that's right.)
