Much needed

I was just outside, shoveling heaps of compost and discovering some of the largest earthworms I have ever seen, when I noticed that the sun wasn't beating down on me the way it usually does. Then, as I began turning over the row where I'm planning to plant the okra, little drops of water began to spatter on my arms. I could hear the droplets hitting the leaves in the woods.

I ran to the radish bed to pull the radishes I absolutely needed to pull today. As I scampered inside with them, the rain began to fall in earnest.

Now we just need it to rain harder, and for longer.
