Before the Rain

April 13, 2013

The weather was warm.  The soil was drying.  We were getting raised beds prepared and seeded and fields cultivated.  The last of the winter carrots were harvested and much of the hoop house was planted.  Then the rain was forecasted so we hooked up the rain barrels and connected up the water catchment system on the one side of the hoop house ( didn’t get the other side done yet).  Then came the rain…and we were happy.
