No Gardening Today

Because it is raining! For the second day in a row!

Josh was kind enough to help me add some organic compost to the garden on Monday. We sprinkled it on and mixed it in the soil between the plants. Everything was looking a little tired and worse for wear with all the heat and dry weather we've been having. I thought adding a nutritious top dressing might revive them and wanted to get it on there before the forecasted rain. Not really believing it would actually rain, I watered heavily on Tuesday morning. Low and behold it rained an hour after I left the garden. And then it rained all day. And this morning it is raining. Finally, after weeks of dry and hot weather, those plants are finally getting some relief.
