Drier than burnt toast

So here in the middle of Indiana we’ve been having what some would call a drought, by some I mean everyone. I can’t even remember the last time that it rained here. Of course this is the year that I expanded the garden¬†with¬†the intention of feeding ourselves by eating directly from it and canning stuff for the winter. I’ve been watering, a lot!

They say there is some raining coming tomorrow, of course that’s the day I’m working outside at work. Fun, making countertops in the rain. Should be a great day. The worst part about it is, they are only predicting about 1/4″ inch of rain. Meaning it won’t soak down deep enough to really help my garden or any of my other plants really.

It’s not even really summer yet!

I really hope this is not the preview of things to come. The local farmers are probably fearing the worst right now too.

Mother Nature sure has a way of keeping you in check. When the early thaw came in February/March and I was out tilling the soil and planting before St. Patrick’s Day, I should have known it was too good to be true. I mean I was getting lettuce and radishes in early April! That’s so unbelievable for us in Indiana. Now we pay for it by having a dry late spring.

Let’s just hope this summer is a bit easier than last summer. We need a good one.
