Yay for rain!
Although I didn't hear it last night, I could smell rain when I let the dog out this morning, and I could see puddles on the ground when the sun finally came up. Yay!
I'm a four-season gardener this year, since I not only have spinach, garlic and onions coming up (because I planted them earlier in the fall), I also have this, which is a red mustard that I planted for the first time last spring. I picked it just a few times before it bolted, but it obviously went to seed, since I have little mustard seedlings coming up in multiple places. I liked it, but it definitely had a bite to it. I'm thinking it will be a good green for winter, since it obviously doesn't mind sub-freezing temperatures. I have more mustard coming up in a few other places, and I'm leaving the leaves in place to act like a mulch.
So I'm happy when it rains, because I don't know if my once-a-week hose dragging is giving everything enough water, but it's all I can manage in the winter.
In addition to the aforementioned spinach, garlic, onions and mustard, I also have carrots and beets still in the ground and kale and broccoli that are still producing. Ever so slowly due to lack of water, but still producing.
So yay for rain!
