A Rain, A Small Rain, But Rain Non-the-Less

Seems like yesterday I was whining from the rainiest winter on record, and seems like forever since we had a good rain.  A few weeks for sure.  The clay was cracking already.  We got a little rain tonight, not enough to do any good, but it made me feel better.   Maybe they'll be more later.

Fire Reared Its Ugly Head at New Dawn, Fire Blight That Is

No doubt due to the hard winter, fire blight has reared its head here and there.  I fought this battle once in a previous garden, but it is a tough one to win short of a chainsaw.   Triple Action 20 did the trick last time, and that is what I will use again, but I have to move quick.
