Rainy days here in Florence


I'm well aware that Tuscany desperately needed this rain, but my goodness all of these dreary days are starting to take a toll! The only saving grace is that constant rain is rare here, so two hours of downpour is typically followed by a half hour of sun.

While we might be a little depressed, our garden is loving the weather -- sprouts are popping up like crazy! Here's hoping it helps our our harvest be more than the single tomato from last year. This year we're trying for two types of tomatos, zucchini, cucumber and peppers. Fingers crossed!
