A Rainy Saturday

11 Sep

I would dearly love to quit celebrating every measurable rain because it’s such an unusual thing, but that’s where we are.  Saturday brought a most of the day rain event.

The last rain took us out of moderate drought and put us back into abnormally dry.  Hopefully, the rain we got on Saturday will keep us there.

It really was  an all day event.  By 8:30 in the morning, the dark clouds were here.

Shortly after that, the rain started and brought the goats back up from pasture.

They did get to go out a bit later, but it rained more.  I am grateful for all the rain we did get. (Edit) When it was all done, we had just under an inch.

Pretzel trying to sneak into the barn; don’t worry. She made it.

Since it was raining, I decided it was a perfect day to clear the counter of tomatoes…again.

What was left (and a layer in the box) after another batch of sauce this week.

I did more quarts of cold pack tomatoes and more quarts of juice.

I’m thinking I might still try to sneak in a batch of taco sauce.

The last few tomatoes wouldn’t fit in my pan to make juice.

I’d have to go pick more tomatoes, and I’m not sure what’s left, so we’ll see.
