Our patch of green in southeast Oklahoma has been getting abundant rain. People are already complaining about it on social media, and it makes them look selfish and short-sighted. We need rain in a very fundamental way; the land on which we live can only sustain us if there is rain. But waa waa on Facebook because soccer moms have to walk to their cars in the Wal Mart parking lot in the rain. Idiots.
The chance of a freeze now is quite small, which means that I will likely have peaches, plums, and cherries from my orchard, and tomatoes, cucumbers, peppers, cantaloupe, and squash from the garden.
There is more rain in the forecast, and I am very glad. The slight inconvenience is more than worth it to have our land green and healthy.
