Yay! First we've had so far this month. claims it's half an inch so far, but I think it may be a little more. I'd like to claim responsibility for it -- I watered almost everything in the backyard yesterday -- but it seems much more likely that it was the neighbor washing his car who spurred the clouds into action. :)

Next time I can get some photos uploaded I need to make happy noises about foraging blackberries, too.


  1. Your blog is fantastic! I didn't realize you'd started your own homestead... I know you talked about it back in the DW days and it's awesome that you've actually made it happen.

    1. Thank you! It's still in very bitty beginning stages, but I did finally get the chance -- after switching jobs -- to purchase a patch of my very own dirt and start learning how to work with it. There's so much I still need to learn, and so much more I want to do, but the process is finally *happening*. It feels great.
