Can it GET any wetter?

It's wet.  Really, really wet.  I  haven't heard any report on how many inches we've gotten in the last few days, but it's been a lot.  We are SOGGY!  And with a currently predicted 90 percent chance of rain for today!
Wow.  And not in a good way.  Well, good for the late fall/overwintered seeds I planted out on Tuesday.  But NOT GOOD for the dry beans and winter squash that are trying to dry and ripen in the field. I told a friend of mine who was trying to grow harvest grains in this soggy, soggy September, it's not over til it's over and the last plant from the fields are harvested.  (My friend responded by remarking, "Farmers are such gamblers!"  Well yes, we are.  Not to mention stubborn.).
Anyways, what can we do but carry on?  So we shall.  And are off to market today despite the likelihood of a really really soggy day (hence much less customers).  But hey, we've got plastic pants!
So, bring out the rubber boots and the umbrellas and the rain jackets, and head on down to commiserate with us!  It's PacNW fun time!
