I think we here in the east are all very tired of the rain! I even hear reports on the radio about summer S.A.D. as opposed to winter S.A.D.. I am trying very hard to look past the rain. I had high hopes for this summer after the lousy summer last year. We made plans for a staycation this summer and not just because of the economy. We have a lovely backyard and when we sit outside it is so peaceful. It is our cottage in the city.
I work from 6am Saturday and Sunday mornings, part-time. When I come home I am ready for the day. I usually am in the garden. I am ok gardening after a rainfall, best time to weed. I am not so dedicated that I garden while it is raining. So, what to do? I sound like my kids.... I 'm bored!
One day while it was raining I repotted my indoor plants and herbs, long overdue! They were happy for the attention! I then wrote in my garden journal, updating it with plans and ideas and the names of newly planted perennials from springtime. I realized that I need to move a few of the new perennials as they would do better in another spot. The best time to transplant is during a light rainfall or after a rainfall, less transplant shock.
My three rain barrels are full again!
The lettuce and pea pods are thriving, but my carrots are not. The carrot seed might be old so will try more seed later, once the rain stops.
Hey, I just looked out the window and the rain has stopped......gotta go.....bye
