Yesterday evening, around supper time, a storm blew through. The rain barrel was overflowing within minutes and the husband and I were on the porch watching the lightning.
Did you know lightning is good for a garden? Apparently the electric charge of lightning causes the nitrogen particles in the air to bond with the oxygen particles and form nitrogen oxides. These in turn attach to a rain drop and fall to the earth, naturally fertilizing the garden. This is why your garden will look so much greener after a thunderstorm.
A quick stake to support it and it will be fine.
Gardening is God's way of teaching patience.
