We have had 5.32 inches of rain so far in July. It’s been a very wet summer. We had just come out of a drought last summer so guess the good Lord thought we needed lots of rain. Anyway, all the plants are growing so well. The Black-eye Susans are over populating and the grasses are taking over the hill side.
