Rainy Days & Mondays

Another storm has softly soaked the southland.  It’s supposed to linger on a few days bringing us some more rain.

With the rain comes cloud cover and cloud cover means “warmer” temperatures. 

It’s great transplant weather.  The last few days, the guys have been busy sketching in some new edible shrubs for the front yard and then going out and planting and transplanting the new edibles.

Thankfully the rain wasn’t too hard because everything’s still soaked from the heavy rains last week. 

The animals can’t seem to figure out why on earth would we bring such misery on them yet again. Didn’t we torture them enough last week.   I would say So Cal really does raise a bunch of spoiled animals and people who can’t seem to deal with rain.   Rain is a blessing and we are going to need a lot more storms like this one to get us through the dry months next year.

So let it rain, let it rain, let it rain!

Hooray, we past the longest night!  It’s almost time to stop devouring seed catalogs with our eyes and get planting.

For us, late January and early February is when we start our tomatoes going.  So in just a few weeks it’s time to start those seed blocks going…. spring countdown has just begun!

    Why do you put the covers (looks like netting) on the rows at this point? Doesn’t that keep them from getting the moisture they need from your rain?

      @Tracy, I think its a mesh. so the water gets through.
