We got about 36 rain drops yesterday, not enough to make a dent in our >6″ rainfall deficit this spring. After two years of droughty weather in a row, maybe it’s time to think about a backup irrigation system that consists of more than two watering cans. This dry weather has been tough on our early vegetables, with poor germination and struggling seedlings. Forecast is calling for a good soaking from Sunday into Tuesday – let’s hope that’s true. If we get some good rain soon, I think a lot of what is in the garden will recover quickly.
This Monday will be our last pickup at the Brigham Hill Community Barn, so get your meat orders in. We’ll be back to our normal pickup at the Potter Hill barn as soon as we have some vegetables ready for harvest. In the meantime, feel free to shoot me an email if you need something.
