And the bottom fell out…

no, not from the market… from the sky.  We just got over an inch in less than a half-hour.  And there’s another system headed for us.  It’s a huge wall, it’s dense, it’s dark, and it’s moving SLOWLY.

Our lakes are in good shape.  The ground is saturated.  And my squash plants are starting to turn into triffids, growing a foot a day.  (!!)

If this is global warming, give me more of it.  Having the gulf stream hang out down here longer in the springtime is suiting me just fine so far…

    Other than the nasty cold snap we had, the spring has been pretty good to me plant wise as well, but the rains do seem to be feast or famine – either we get too much for several days turning my clay-heavy yard into a swamp, or we don’t get any for several weeks turning the yard brown and forcing me to water the gardens every day.

    What type of squash? The ever popular zucchini that grows like Kudzu by late summer to the point that you can’t give the stuff away fast enough, or the yellow stuff? Or do you branch out into acorn and spaghetti squash?

    Yeah, rain is all good, unless you have to drive through it. I had constant rain the second I left Fort Worth (I got a bit turned around and left Irving via the seanic route, going south never a problem, going north…). I had 2 times that I was driving 40 mph for over 30 minutes becuase the rain was so hard. And was hailed on twice. Most of Kansas north of Wichita was flooded too.

    Global Warming my butt.

    Yellow crookneck, and it’s growing like mad… something like a foot or so per day…

    Mike,

    Oddly, we didn’t get much here in Lawrence – it just missed us somehow. I’ve got a relative up about 60 miles SW of KC, who has something like 15 feet or so of water in a little creek we cross for deer hunting, which normally has about 6 inches of water or so….

    Russ,

    My copy of the Silver Spoon has some recipes for zucchini flowers if you want them.

    Lucky you. In Salina the animals were lining up in pairs there was so much water on the ground.
