Rainy and cruddy all day. Just a wasted day.
On the other hand, the newly planted garden needs the rain. One thing that never ceases to amaze me about plants is that even when you do your best to plant them, they sometimes look a little cock-eyed and tilted when you are done, but within 48 hours, they are growing straight as an arrow. I’ve sort of just given up on the aesthetics of the garden for this year, and am just piling tons of hay and grass clippings as needed on the lot.
I’ve also decided that I enjoy this enough that I am going to get some grow lights and put a little grow table in the basement so I can do my own seedlings this winter and really kick it up a notch. I figure the initial outlay will run me a couple hundred bucks, but if I have success with it I will save a ton of money in the long run on plants.
