Here it is Florida weather for TBerrysGarden.  For close to a month now we haven’t been  getting any rain.  Now for two days straight it has been raining continuously.  I’m not  complaining.  I am enjoying every minute of it.  For the last 4 to 5 years we have been in close to drought conditions.  Normally around this time of the year is when all the fires start due to the dry/no rain conditions.  I Thank God for the Rain.

Below is the current weather conditions for today.

 This is my little fish pond.  The water level is so high that the turtle could get out if he wanted to.

He seems to like his home.

Photos On  May 24Th my Squash seemed to be doing alright considering all the rain for many days.  The sun came out yet the water was still running through my garden.  I dug a small trenchto let the water flow away from the vegetables.  I was a tad too late for this one.  When the sun finally came out, it  was  more than  this plant could take.  It seemed to be in that ole shock stage.  Yet, look at the next picture below taken on the same day just minutes later a few steps away from this one.  A different set of squash plants next to my grapevine.
