Well the good news is that we won’t have to water our plants for probably a month, and we did get all the seeds and transplants in the ground we wanted to (hopefully some of the seeds didn’t wash away though!). Also good is the fact that 24 hours of rain gave me time to get some much needed housework and relaxation done and it’s still continuing, for though the rain has stopped it is still way too soggy to even think of working in the fields let alone walking through the fields. Even the greenhouse is pretty soggy and I have made a few ruts just walking.
So I guess there is no bad news. Like the song says, around here, “rain is a good thing.” I am noticing I am now able to tell the subtle changes in temperature and the look of the clouds that mean a front is coming in. I also like the work of settling all the children, animals and equipment in for a good long rain. Yes rain is pretty fun, especially when we are making good headway through our list of projects before the season starts a short month away.
