Monsoon season

Don't know what the weather's like where you are, but around here we've been getting torrential downpours almost every other day, and frequently multiple times a day. Our one section of garden is nearly 2 inches deep in water, with enough of it moving at one point that it shoved a stone paver nearly four feet.

The oddest part of it all is that peoples' lawns are green. Around here, usually grass goes brown and door-matty by the middle of July, but this year everything's doing its level best to spawn a rain forest jugle. Which then requires an awful lot of weeding, even when you have chickens quite eager to 'help'.


(....how to tell it's time to hit the lights and go to sleep: you keep losing the beginning of a sentence by the time you reach the end. If you manage even that much. Hope you all are doing better.)
