Time to intervene
Here it is, the third week of April, and all I have to show for my planting efforts is about 500 sugar snap peas, several which I am sure have drowned in our record-setting rains. Worse, it is suppose to rain more, likely five out of the next seven days.
Thanks to my brother, I have a large roll of construction plastic, a white type that is reinforced with fiberglass. It's about 10', maybe 12' wide and tomorrow, it gets unrolled on my garden, at least part of it. A space large enough to transplant about 60 Early Wonder tomato plants (that are already 12" or higher) and a similar amount of Parris Island Cos lettuce seedlings.
As wet as it has been, I cannot and will not complain about the rain. Not after going nearly three months with nothing more than a sprinkle or two last year!
