But it's been good for the garden, and because I haven't gotten the rain barrel set up yet - because I haven't gotten the stupid shrub stump out of the back yard yet - it's enabled me to put aside a good bit of water for the times when it hasn't rained.
For your consideration, two photos of the tomato beds:
|May 6 - a day after planting|
|June 19 - after much rain and enough sun|
Nature is weird. They'll catch up.
But the berries are turning blue, and I got spikes and netting in the ground last weekend so that the berries are protected from the birds and squirrels as they're ripening. And the birds and squirrels are interested.
I have issues with squirrels. More on that soon.
