Plants thrive on rain water. I have enough saved… to quench their thirst for a week or two. ~~ Rain stopped for several hours but returned full force. I pulled more containers from the storage building so (at 3:00 PM) there are eleven. ~~ Click each picture for details, and to enlarge.

At last count, twelve containers!! I think I can find a couple more containers because rain is forecast all week and over the weekend.

    You have one end of your awning lower than the other, so the rain can’t collect on the awning, right? People forget and end up with busted awnings because of that a lot. Also, remember that in places where mosquitoes are a problem, they may frown on standing water. But with a big garden, you’ll probably use it up before the little buggers could use it for a breeding ground, lol. Looks like everything is doing well despite that storm that beat them u a little bit!
