Weeding is easier after the rains but they sure thrive more than our veggie plants from the rain don't they?

just pulled a bunch, but didn't make a dent, why is it the grass in our grassy area is anything but and our veggy garden is mostly grass? and now we have more rain on the way.

Well, I was tending my raised bed yesterday and saw 2 tiny green tomatoes forming.

Anyone with rain to spare...Please Send It! We are in the midst of a bad drought, even the weeds are struggling. The perennials I set are being sparsely hand watered.`I wish the news media would give residents a heads up as to how close to a critical thing this is. Guess we need to have a few more wells go dry the lake nearby is down about 6-8 ft. and dropping. Quit hogin' it down there, dontcha know!

Hi wordsmith680 nice seeing you here! You may gladly come down to my part of IN to have all the rain ya can haul back. We are having low temps on top of the rain so kind of worried about my garden I just got put in this past weekend.

With FL losing their early tomato crops I planted extra up here just because I know the store prices are going to reflect the crop loss. We are already at $3.99 per pound for fresh maters now.

HB2HSV maybe you better put an alarm around your mater plants to safe guard them.

We had a bit of rain the past two days surprisingly. However, I can't help you. We hand water down here. This bit of rain wasn't that normal.

I was really hoping to get in the tomatoes and peppers this week. But its been dropping down to 35-40 degrees at night! Looks like Memorial day weekend will be planting time again this year!

This morning I transferred several little fava bean seedlings from the mini greenhouse on the windowsill out into big pots on the patio. They really took off fast, their roots had already grown through the mini greenhouse cells. I also transferred some cucumber seedlings from the greenhouse into large pots, but its really windy today so they're sitting inside in a sunny spot until they get a little bigger.

I have a new "petite" fig tree that supposedly only grows to 12-15" and fruits the first year. I ordered it from a nursery online and it arrived very healthy looking and seems to have grown already on the patio.

I know this is the veggie garden thread but I just have to say how cheery my bright purple snapdragon is and I think I'm going to go buy some other colors. :-)

We are on our 11th day in a row of rain calling for 2 more days of it. Then on the news tonight they say we still haven't gotten enough. Come tell that to my yard & garden I'm praying we don't have to replant because of low temps of standing waters.
