No Dirt, No Planting
You might remember that we put in another raised bed this year in our backyard.
We have been unable to get it filled with dirt. We had over 9 inches of rain in April. One of the wettest April's on record in our area! We were waiting on the ground to dry out in our side yard so we could back the truck in to unload the dirt. Just when we thought we were going to be able to start there is rain in our forecast for the next 8 days! So no dirt means no planting.
On a good note....We given some beautiful Tomato Plants from one of Matt's co workers.
She started some Purple Cherokee, KY Beefsteak, Bloody Butcher and Endless Summer. Thanks, Deb!
We also got some Pepper Plants from our neighbor Janelle. Thanks Janelle!
So as soon as it stops raining we will get everything planted........ I hope!
