        The rain was needed but the sunshine is appreciated more. I can see the cabbage heads forming in our garden. The tomatoes are on the vine but still green. Our berry bushes are producing early this year because of the warm weather. The blackberries and raspberries are plentiful. Hopefully soon we will be enjoying fresh corn, beans and tomatoes.
