August 12, 2005 – Rain, Rain

It has been very unusual for August – things are starting to mold (raspberries and tomatoes) and mushrooms are popping up in the yard. The combination of still winds, frequent rain and drizzle and warmth makes things tough in the garden. It is unusual not to have any brown patches in the lawn.

We started getting ready for market today and went clothes shopping for Linda in Des Moines and had a dinner at a co-worker’s with “the Department.”
