Enjoy the rain, I which we had some more!

This has reminded me that I need to sow my cosmos and rudbeckia this week. Enjoy the rain


Yep, it's time to direct sow! When it rains like that here...I wish for a cistern to collect it for the drought of summer! gail

That's a lot of rain, Kathleen! Hopefully it was warm and soothing, not cold April Atlantic rain like we get here.

And now...many many thanks for your awesome creativeness in the Gardening by Letter project! What a lift it was to get that parcel yesterday and see what everyone had sent, and yours were especially heartwarmingly lovely. I work all week in an office elsewhere in the province, and I'm taking the cards with me to put on my bulletin board for instant cheermaking. Thank you again, and I'm glad to get to 'know' you across the miles.


That's alot of rain! Hope it dries out soon for you. Thanks for the reminder. I really need to get my direct sowing done now that I've got most of my plants in the ground.

Did you empty the container and begin again? I'm curious as to how much rain you actually received!! :-)


Well, the packet said guaranteed to grow and they were right. That is a very pretty variety I've never seen before. Hope your rain stop soon.


Hi Kathleen, All that rain bodes well, at least in my book with so little the last few years. Yes, I would empty the gauge and start over. I always check mine after a rain and find it most helpful. That storm is here now and I am loving it. A good excuse to relax inside with HGTV:)

Growing plants from seed is most entertaining, isn't it? I bet your plants are going to love the rain.


So how much rain did you get? Sounds like an awful lot. The Cosmos look healthy and that is a fast germination rate!
