Gentle wonderful rain and our Community Garden

We are getting much welcome rain here in Charlottesville, and the best kind of rain for our gardens: gentle, soaking rain. The dampness is bringing out the wonderful earthy smell of late summer.

Our Community Garden volunteers were out in force a few days ago, joining with volunteers from Trinity Episcopal Church, the parish located in the garden's neighborhood (more on that exciting development in another post). They've added new compost, planted spinach and other greens, cleared away a lot of dead brush, and prepared the garden for winter.

Here is a photo I took late yesterday during the rain. Enjoy your garden!
