Let me be more specific, besides a rainy weekend, what do you see as a gardener?
I see a window of opportunity for us gardeners.
- There are no frost warnings in sight! If you haven't done so, it looks like a good time to plant our tender tomatoes, peppers, cucumbers, melons and squash.
- I see that someone else is going to do the watering. If I can, I'll plant as much as I can before the rain so that Mother Nature will do the watering instead of me. She does a much better job of watering the garden than I can ever hope to do with my watering can.
- I also know that after the rain, I'll have to wait a couple of days before I can walk through the garden without collecting an inch of soil on my shoes. How much longer do I want to delay my planting?
- I see high temperatures ahead. Seeds and young transplants love moisture followed by a good warm spell.
This forecast looks great for us gardeners. Looks like it's time to turn off the computer and head down to the garden!
