Rain Rain Go Away!
I don’t know about you, but I’m tired of the rain already! I want to be able to get back outside, and the rain is hindering me! (And like any good gardener, a few days after it has stopped raining, I’ll be complaining about how dry it is and that I need to water.)
The other frustrating part of all the rain (beyond the soggy ground), is that many of the lettuces and leafy salad vegetables are nearly at a harvestable stage. The rain is splashing soil up onto the leaves and into the crown of the plants. I’m a little concerned that some of the smaller plants might suffocate. However, my main concern is that trying to get the leaves clean enough to eat will be a challenge, even with a brand new salad spinner!
