Let It Grow Organic Gardens

A Veritable Frenzy of Activity, Followed by a Period of House Cleaning

It was warm and dry last week, a rare, extended warm and dry for March, I readied the ground I will need for Spring planting, and then I readied some more. It's fertilized and disked, and dragged out nice and smooth. And there were warm and dry days after that, so I started to seed. Carrots are in the ground, and beets and lettuce and radishes and bok choi and spinach and probably some other things, too.
The internet was telling me that rain would be likely tomorrow, and then it was tomorrow. I was determined to get as much done as possible before the wetness. I plowed my neighbor's garden for her, then dissked it, then disked it again. I graded our road. I raked up the area in front of the intern house, and then I mowed (!). I mulched the raspberries.
And then the rain came. It came gentle and slow, settling on and around the little seeds and soaking into their little seed coatings. And it rained the day after that and it's forecast to rain for the rest of the week. I've been in the house picking things up and putting them back down. The back room where the washing machine is actually has a floor, and the foyer no longer looks like Vikings camped there. My desk may actually be organised by the time the sun sets tonight, and if the rain continues, I may takle the potting shed.
