According to my rain gauge, 2.25" fell this afternoon, too much for the storm sewer at the end of the driveway. The water came almost into the garage. Thank goodness it has stopped raining. For now.
Some gardening has occurred between rain showers. Most of the tomatoes are planted - 8 Amish Paste, 2 German Pinks, and 2 Hungarian Heart all fit into the 4'x20' bed in the garden, and a Patio Princess is in a pot. I am going to try something different with the two remaining - an Early Girl and a Fresh Salsa Hybrid - and plant them directly into bags of Miracle Grow potting soil. I've seen this somewhere and thought I would give it a try.
The onions are looking good:

|The white pot is for the Patio Princess.|
So far, the patio strawberry tower is looking good:
|I expect the robins will be trying to steal berries off this.|
|The smell is so sweet!|
And that's all for now!
