Wet Saturday

Well-watered lettuce

It's been raining for the past two days.

On one hand, it's been wonderful! I love the rain!

On the other hand, my lettuce was completely under water yesterday, and it kind of put a crimp on my hardening off schedule for my seedlings, and my plans for planting today. Which I will take as a sign to wait. I think today is a good day for baking instead.

It's funny how this year, as I try very hard to become a decent, successful gardener and provide food for our family from our property, I pay more attention to the weather and what is coming.

In other news, Munchie took his first unassisted steps to Daddy last night! I was cheering and jumping, and he was looking at me like I was a crazy person. It's such a weird experience to be so proud, but a little sad at the same time.

Happy weekend!

He wanted to walk so bad yesterday. Yep, we do get excited.
Oh well I always find that is the beauty of gardening, the waiting part and learning about patience. We have day after day next week in the 80s so you should have your chance.

Wow, that's a lot of rain for you, isn't it? Yay for Munchie. There's no stopping him now :)

First steps?????? Oh no - he's growing up. :( I can't believe the amount of rain. Maybe this is a test to see how dedicated you are to learning this whole gardening thing. :)

Thank you so much for the soap-making advice you left on my blog. That was exactly what I've been worried about - the smell of lye in the house. I am definitely going to be following the way you suggested. Can't wait!!
