Thar Bee SNOW!

picture by John Gutenkunst for the Parker Pioneer

See That!
It Snowed on Sunday
at 4,131 ft.
or so.
These are the Whipple Mountains
on the other side of the Colorado river,
The California side.
It was an interesting site to see from our desert home
and This is as close as i want to get these days.

i never did like snow.

 It got chilly here too;
Rain and sun at the same time
but at least the rain settled the dust that had been kicked up last week.
We get lots of blowing dust here.

We were glad for the rain
it was good for our experimental garden.

i have Zucchini coming up in a pot
and chard,
lettuce and tiny carrots popping up in the box Sweet B' built for me.
We're going for broke this year...& built another, bigger raised bed.
Planted hierloom muskmelons
and will plant native squash that are said to do well here in our dry and thirsty land.
i hope to save seed in order to continue the process.
my rain barrel/bucket brimmed over with this storm so we're looking to install a larger vessle... Maybe Two!

The forcast is for more of what we're used to
Sunny & warm.

Hope all is well where You Are

 kare to join me in a Cuppa Aloe?
