Miscellaneous: Heavy Rain Today (June 3, 2009)

Rain in June is rare here, but we're having a downpour. The official rain year begins on July 1, so this is likely the last rain of the 2008-2009 season. From the perspective of the plants in the garden, it's simply a last sip of water before the long dry season begins. Checking the rain gauge, we seem to have gotten only a tenth of an inch, which won't make much of a difference--although it'll mean spraying the grapes with sulfur again to prevent mildew.
