Monsoon Magic

Just when we start thinking we might not make it until fall, monsoons arrive to lift our spirits.  The summer rain has a way of making the garden grow like no amount of irrigation ever could.  Our summer cover crops are looking good and sunflowers are blooming.  The bees are happily buzzing in the flowering Thai basil and buckwheat.  The fig trees look amazing!  They have more than doubled in size and even have fruit on them.  I think we might just survive summer after all!
