I am glad you enjoyed my pix of my garden.  Yes, my garden is fenced in so that I do not have every animal around eating my hard work.

William, it sounds like we are in the same boat, no rain.  We are expecting rain today but it is suppose to come in real fast.  Meaning, it won't soak into the ground, just run off.  But rain is rain.

Sorry I've not gotten back to you.  For some reason, I'm not getting email notifications of postings to my groups any longer.   Those romas (?) look great..when did you start them from seed.. or did you buy them?    I've got about half of my toms in containers and they are getting some blossoms.  No peppers ready to go to final planting yet...thinking I started the seeds too late but we shall see.   Your garden is always top-notch and I'll get some pics up soon.  Cheers!

Well I wish we had some real rain here in Central Oklahoma. We had enough yesterday to wet the sidewalk and that was all. We are 7 inches behind in rain fall and desperately in need of rain. My Squash have all come up in the window sill and leggy like the tomatoes. I still have a month before I can set them outside safe from the frost.

Diana, what lovel pictures.  More rain today, so I will go to a meeting about dementia instead of garden work.  We had a powerful storm come through yesterday knocking power out for many people.  March is coming in like a lion for us here on the coast.

love your pics diana my dschungle isn,t as large, we do have a fairly long backyard, but most of my stuff nearly all is in pots, even my railway tree, its a native, long story cut short, a stationmaster dug it out in between running trains, it couldn,t stay where it grew and me being a greenfinger wanted it, this tree is doing well now for 16 1/2 yrs. in a washing machine bowl! it even flowered I believe they call it kurrayong! white clusters of flowers, and never disturbed its roots once , are you going to fence your veggiepatch?

diana when I look what is happening all around the globe , we are lucky not more disasters are happening, they get at our primeminister because of the carbon tax but she has got a point, taking action is never a easy thing, only in hindsight are we usually seeing if our decisions were correct and that goes for everything including gardening!one of the things I read was one farmer put trees on his land in a L shape , wood for sale at a later date, he got all the rain and the others missed out!, I know what I am thinking should be done , but you have too many not thinking everything through, and not enaugh trees mean no rain or little, and topsoil washed away.....I hope for you your wish will be answered in a drizzle form, so the earth can soak it up!like they say becareful what you wish......
