Boston: Recent rains quench parched gardens, farms

Greetings from our community and a big hello to all our readers as circumstances have prevented this column from appearing for a while.

The recent welcome rain should make everyone feel better after the hot summer spell.

Local gardeners, if they weren’t in a position to water their plants, have needed rain so badly. The same holds true for our farmers.
