We Need Rain

Unfortunately the state of the vegetables is going downhill fast. A week ago I sold my cukes. Today the vine is dead and the cucumbers are shrivelled and sun bleached. Weather is cruel.

The beets and the carrots have to wait for the ground to get softened up before we have a shot at harvesting more than greens. Speaking of which, I think I have something eating those too. Even with a fence.

Stayed up till 2am watching men's volleyball, only to give up when the Russians won the third set. Great game - what I saw of it. USA advanced.
