Rain and More Rain!

It wasn't more than a week ago that I commented to Mr. M that we really could use some rain.  We had planted a few things in the vegetable garden and the soil was so dry.
Well, did we get rain!!  As of today, we have had 6 3/4 inches of rain since Monday night.  The soil is plenty wet now!

These are pictures of our pumpkin patch a couple of days ago.  Thankfully, we had not planted the pumpkin seeds yet.  This is a low area of our garden, and usually does not get flooded like this---about once every 6 or 8 years, it is under water for a few days.

We are hoping to be able to get out and do some planting in the rest of the garden now that rain is no longer in the forecast.  It will be nice to see the sun again after so many days without it!
