Fuckity fuckity fuckity.

Beginning of this week, there was supposed to be rain on Tuesday but just clouds Wednesday/Thursday. Of course there was torrential rain on Tuesday, so much that it was too wet to work the couple of hours it wasn't also raining on Wednesday. But today was still supposed to be dry.

I stop at the garden store on the way back from dropping Aiden at daycare and get tomatoes and peas and strawberries and bell peppers and dill and chives and lavender and lettuce and basil -

and by the time I get home, it's raining.


I may just bundle up, take my hearing aids out, and go out in the rain anyway. Drat drat drat. (short for "drowned rat", which is what I shall look like after doing that)

Ah, you were prolly out at the garden shop when I swung by then. Hope you at least got my text msg - if not, I need to make sure (again) I have yuor correct #. 'Nother time I WILL find you and hang out w/you! Yeah, stupid rain ain't helping w/my plans either. Silk in rain ain't pretty or nice...

Aw nuts! I just saw your text msg. (Unfortunately I don't tend to hear it if it's in my purse, and I don't check it terribly often unless I'm expecting a message). I was about 10 minutes from getting home when you messaged. Alas.

Next time!

I also was wanting to get some planting done during the Cancer moon but it seems to have invoked the rains. I'm hoping for tomorrow to be somewhat decent, otherwise I'll have to throw on some rain gear and hope my seeds don't wash away.

gardening in the rain is awful.
Hopefully your soil is sandy and not with too much clay? if theres clay please wait till it is dry.

*dies laughing*

My front lawn is ALL clay. I'm ripping it out to plant the lilacs. It *was* dry Monday.... No more!


I'm hoping she's not got the same problem. Most likely not. PA is mostly rock and clay, I'm told.

Planting in light rain is actually really good - for the plants that is.

*points to my drowned front lawn*

I gave up, the lilacs are in pots. It'll take me a week now to finish digging things up. We're going to tempt the rain by shopping for MORE dirt tonight. Watch me pull a storm out of my hat!

In my experience the real "heavy lifting" part of gardening around here is almost invariably done in the rain. You just have to embrace the fact that you're gonna be cold, wet, and muddy before it's done.
