    It's rained here all day, and a rumble of thunder way off in the distance. We've been spared from what you're getting.

    How's the garden?

    Rain? What's that? No such thing in Dubai. If it rains here it's a natural disaster, all the roofs leak and everyone gets flooded out. I'm talking half an inch of gentle rain causes millions in damage.

    Seriously :rolleyes:

    It really did a number on my garden . I was so happy with the raised beds . Many people n the area couldn't plant due to water . I had my garden in early . Was hoping for an early crop ........ ha ha on you says mother nature !
    My pepper plants are green sticks as is the green beans . Tomatoes faired pretty good - just look sad right now . Squash leaves - oh what leaves - lol . Peas look ok . Beets - carrot - onions and garlic faired well - just smooshed into the dirt .
    I am going to keep my eyes on them - maybe replant some things .
    Dang it

    But only if the weeds could bring in some cash. They are lovely this time of year!
    Dh has lyme so I get to do it all. the one major thing he would do is cut the grass( low on my priority list). The back around the apple trees is past my hip. Not even pretty enough for the vase. I wish I could trust the goats they would love it out ther but it is too close to the garden, been there done that.

    Our tomatoes look really sad...I think they are just too...wet. :(

    We've missed most of the bad thunderstorms here for the most part... :)
