More than 11 inches of rain fell on Washington, D.C., since last Friday night. Thank goodness it's finally over. Today we have bright sunny skies, but I haven't gotten out to the plot yet. I haven't been there since Sunday when we got caught in the downpour.

I am nervous about the status of things over there. We received an e-mail from the president of the garden saying that many of the pathways around the plots have been washed out. He's calling on everyone to pitch in an help re-build the paths with wood chips. So I wonder what this means for everyone's plots. We had just planted some new herbs on Sunday; I hope they haven't all washed away. And the tomatoes... I especially hope the tomatoes are all right. I am hoping to get over there this evening to see how everything is doing.

I just found your blog recently and it's a joy reading. I also live in the DC area - it's so wonderful to see the sun again, isn't it? I hope that your garden plot is ok.

We are in Alexandria; our tomato plants survived, as did everything else, thankfully. I hope everything survived in your plot!

We were spared the worst of the storms here in Northeastern New Jersey. I hope everything works out for you.

Thanks, everyone. Almost everything survived and, fortunately, it wasn't as bad as I was expecting. I know that with all the flooding going on elsewhere, some people have it much worse right now, so I can't complain.
