more rain . more rain!

everything has been loving the almost-daily rain. garden drippers have not been turned on for over two weeks. the roma transplants have began to grow and look really happy. five more future bushes. they are planted slightly above the surrounding ground level, so I may need to add some top soil as well as putting some boards up at the gate to devert rain waters. They have been running small rivers in between the rows of plants for weeks now and most of our good, stinkey top soil is gone... more small I bought six more mouse traps, set them all up last night and guess what? I only have two traps left. Quick results....
I always thought we needed a good barn cat to take care of the mice and such. But with mouse traps workin' like this and at 50 cents a pop, and made in the U.S.A. i'm thinkin forget it.
