Plant seeds before rain? need quick answer
This afternoon I'll be filling a raised bed with Mel's mix. I had planned to plant seeds of some cold-tolerant vegetables - lettuce, Swiss chard, carrots, radishes - right away, leaving squares open for bush beans and others that it is not yet warm enough to plant here.
But the weather forecast is for up to 1/2 inch of rain overnight. I am concerned that small seeds could wash out in a heavy rain. Should I plant them now or wait until after the expected storm?
