If you can’t handle a gardening in rain once in a while, you won’t get a lot of gardening done in the Puget Sound during a particularly soggy spring. After a lovely day on Saturday, during which I mostly played and did very little gardening, I had a few gardening tasks to do today to get caught up so I headed outside anyway, to do some drizzle gardening. Mostly, it was some basic weeding and planting that could easily be done during light rain. The other task I wanted to accomplish, weed-whacking around the raised beds, will have to wait for dryer weather. I was pretty soggy by the time I came in, but I feel good about what I was able to get done. While outside, I took a few pics of some of the progress taking place in the garden, in spite of the wet, cool spring we are having, plus a pic of my new garden helper, which is awesome. I highly recommend having a two-wheeled wheelbarrow. Much easier to use than a single-wheeled barrow.
OOOhhhh! I love the two wheeled barrow! How great is that?! I bet it is much more stable and able to manage much more weight.
I did some drizzle gardening today too but it was mostly in the landscaping area – weeding the front flower bed and pruning/trimming the bushes and shrubbery in that bed. I did the other big bed yesterday, so most of the landscaping beds are back in pretty good shape (other than they all need some fertilizing). Doing that kind of work in the drizzle is actually best as the weeds pull right up in saturated soil.
Congrats on the new wheelbarrow! I have a two-wheeler too and love it. Very stable — even when those around it are not.
