The Strong Keep Growing

Despite being drowned by rain showers, on three different occasions, it looks like our fall garden is resilient. It has taken a rain beating several times, but everything keeps on growing. In fact, the little greens look like they have grown at least a fourth of an inch overnight. We can't wait to have our first batch of fresh home-grown greens. We like to make broth-type soup out of the greens. There is nothing better to warm you up on a cold day, and it's very nutritious too.

Between the rain showers and a couple of days of warm weather we have been enjoying, several plants that would ordinary have died, are still going. The okra are still trying to grow, we are enjoying tomatoes off the vine, and the various peppers keep on producing. It's seems kind of strange, but the weather has been as confusing as ever. I suppose the plants are as confused as we are. We aren't complaining though.
