As mentioned in my last post, I’ve been away for a couple of weeks. The garden started to awaken in my absence (weeds included, of course, and I won’t even discuss what the edges look like).
Unfortunately, many of the borders are also under water thanks to the endless rain, but better rain than drought!
Looking ahead in this week’s forecast, it appears we should have 4-5 dry days, so hopefully that will give the water time to seep into the ground.
We’re also anticipating 3 overnights at or below 32 degrees, so no rush to get things in the ground yet. I just hope the freeze doesn’t damage the fruit blossoms and certain perennials, such as the hosta and peonies, that have already shot up a fair amount of growth.
