Would you like several dead plants to go with them? All of our plants
cooked but two and we're guarding them. Even the fall tomato plants

Good news though. Since my message about the rain falling today we've
gotten in excess of 3.5 inches. It was raining so hard the gutters
overflowed so I filled 3 30 gallon trash cans and several 5 gallon
buckets with rainwater. It has cooled down to the high seventies and a
cool breeze is blowing, it's almost bearable outside. Wet, but bearable.

George, doing a little happy dance for rain
