This is the garden after a power gardening session that got as much as possible in the ground before the rain hit. We knew we didn’t have much time on Saturday morning to garden as the weather channels predicted a downpour of rain at some point in the afternoon. Mother Nature at her finest. We were actually able to get a lot accomplished before the first raindrops came down. Our garden probably doesn’t look any different to you than when you first saw our raised bed garden earlier this Spring. However, this time it is filled with seeds. There are zucchini and cucumber seeds planted around the wire trellis in the back of the bed, followed by green beans, turnips, golden beets and red beets. All of these seeds got planted and covered and then the rain started. We’ll be honest. We didn’t exactly meet our goal. We had also wanted to get some live plants into the ground that were scheduled for planting this weekend. These were some of the plants that are growing under our grow light in the basement. Our eggplant, cabbage, cauliflower and brussels sprouts will have to wait. Darn rain…good for the newly seeded lawn; bad for the backyard vegetable garden. Take a few minutes to see our vegetable garden work this weekend and also see our gorgeous azalea bushes in full bloom.
So we didn’t get all of our gardening chores completed this weekend due to the weather. Good Old Mother Nature is the hardest part of gardening. You never know if she will be too cold, too hot, too wet. The odds are sometimes better in Las Vegas. Did the weather get in your way of a full weekend of gardening?
