Every day this week has
offered what I like to call "seedling rain." Less than a quarter of
inch of liquid falling over the course of twenty-four hours, the gentle
drizzle and overcast conditions perfect for baby vegetables.
The conditions tempt me
to transplant rather than pot up the rest of the seedlings still stuck
under lights indoors. But we have four solid weeks until our frost-free
date and I don't trust the long-range forecast enough to set out
tomatoes, peppers, and basil. Instead, I just watch the gentle rain
perk up March-transplanted peas and broccoli and enjoy the ground
getting a little easier to weed.
