A gentle rain

A gentle rain is falling.  The leaves covering the new garden spot have been turned exposing a dry inner layer to the rain.  The mixture of oats and peas planted as a cover crop last month are knee high and glissen in the rain.  It has been falling gently for hours replenishing the moisture in the soil.  There is no runoff… no erosion… The plants are getting a nice drink. They look happy.  A gentle rain is falling.  A farmer’s rain.
