My rain gauge say just a little bit over .10 inch. That means that so far all is good. It is raining slowly enough to soak in. Whew! I can't see any topsoil runoff, either. Whew again! This is very nice!
I drove into Ruidoso this morning and bought two huge pots for the deck. I also bought tomato plants, chives, dill and mint to plant in them, and within a few weeks I will be enjoying all of those all summer long! Yippee-skippee!! The pots are beautiful, and I thought about how gorgeous they would look with bright flowers in them, but the truth of it is, when I considered the joy of pulling a red tomato off the vine and chomping into it .... well, you know which one won!! I'm not much of a gardener, but a few tomato plant in deck pots with a few herbs surrounding them is hardly a back-breaking labor investment. And as I said, fresh off the vine tomatoes is a weakness. Oh yes, and fried green tomatoes are in my future!! Woo-hoo!!
I'm doing the pots on the deck for a couple reasons .... first the deer can't get to them and eat all my lovely tomatoes, and secondly, the convenience will be excellent. Oh, and third, I don't have to try to dig up this rocky soil to plant them.
I'll do some pix later on. Right now I gotta eat some rice and veggies, change clothes and get to yoga! talk to ya later, y'all!!!
