It has been raining since yesterday. We should get at least 2 inches by the time the storm moves out on Sunday. This is a very warm rain for February, it was 58 at 6:00 AM. Hoping we don't have any flooding or mudslides!
I took the photos below on Wednesday. Also picked a big batch of lettuces and onions before the rain started yesterday. Lots of flowers blooming which I added to my salad.

|2nd planting of Lacinato Kale|
|one of several Giant Mustard|
|Speckles Lettuce, one of our favorites this year.|
|Loquat tree is loaded with fruit, these should be ready in May.|
|Raised bed planted with lacinato kale, ruby and bright lights swiss chard. Seedling of radish, collard greens, beets and carrots.|
|Tatsoi, beets and collard green sprouts (I think)|
|More Speckles lettuce and Lolla Rossa lettuce|
|Leaf lettuce that bolted in the heat. I will let this go to seed head and then save the seeds.|
|More Tatsoi, most have shot up seed heads so I may need to plant out more seedlings now that the rains have come.|
|Onions and swiss chard I pulled from the bed along the driveway|
