Before the Rain…

My husband and I arrived early and had our hands in the earth by 8:15.

We could see the sky darkening. Undaunted, we planted carrots, cucumbers, kale, spinach, herbs, flowers and more.

We cleaned up between rows. When you weed your beds, throw the weeds in a bin. Don’t leave them or any debris from your beds in the pathways. Only wood chips should be in the pathways. This will become increasingly important as the season progresses.

By the time we were done the rain was starting so we packed up the tools and left.

Just in time, too. As we drove away we could hear the thunder, see the lightning and within minutes…a deluge of rain poured down.

But we felt good. It is satisfying to have the garden planted and mother nature watering her in.
