Dear Mother Nature: We'd Like To Go From Brown To Green

OK~ A little update in regards to our little garden in Iowa.  The lettuce is up and we are enjoying it!

And then we have green beans, they too are coming right along!

The onions and potatoes are also growing. We have never planted potatoes, so this is something totally new to all of us. They have little flowers on them, which appears to be a good thing!

The soybeans in the field behind our house are coming right along, but desperately need rain. My brother, the no-till farmer, farms the ground here.

Several corn and soybean fields around us also need a good soaking, this field included. Sadly this has been a common sight lately.

Yep, this is to the East of us. We seem to be sitting in a little hole with a cover over us. Just a few miles to the west they were blessed with an inch of rain the other night and we did not get a single drop! So, Mother Nature, you can turn on the faucet, but please know when to turn it off. Our little garden in Iowa is doing well, thanks to a garden hose and a father-in-law that is willing to water it daily. Our soybeans and corn are needing a drink. Oh yes, and I forgot to mention our lawn. Would someone please tell me how the yard can be brown, with short, crunchy grass, and covered in several weeds which are blossoming? Seems crazy to run the lawn mower to chop the weeds. After All, It's All In a Mom's Day, Right?
