We decided to postpone planting until next Monday after learning this week that the sprinklers won’t be up and running until Monday.
The sprinklers are our only real, large-scale source of moisture, other than Mother Nature, and the ground is extremely dry. Not good for young plants! (We’re not counting on the rainy forecast. That said, if by making this decision it causes it to rain, we’re happy!)
We will now plan to plant the garden at 4 p.m. on Monday, June 2. Here’s to giving our young garden a sure-thing, fighting chance.
