Well in May our plants looked like this, then it rained for a whole 2 1/2 weeks and now look at them....
I made a poem for it too...
Our plants looked droopy the whole spring long
and they could not bear the heat.
We watered and watered the whole time the heat beat down at them.
Then the summer rain began.
For two summer weeks, the rained fell and watered all the plants.
When it cleared up, my brother and I went out to check on the plants;
that night we had salad for dinner.
The next morn, my brother brought in a strawberry to eat,
and the next morn you woudn't believe your eyes!
Two ripe tomatoes from the garden that never ever worked for us.
And the basil?
Don't get me started.....
