I've been off a week and it has rained 5 days out of 7. I headed out between th e rain drops and flooded yard. My lot is all NY muck dirt that was left behind from the last ice age. 2ft Under that is white clay. While it drains off quite well the ground is saturated.
I put in my onion sets,some white radishs and spinach in another area.
Then the rain hit again~hard.

So after supper the rain stopped & I headed out to the garden store to pick up live plants, just about finisned up I was at the register and it started pouring.

Anyway, I've been putting food scraps, sawdust and chicken/duck poop on the plots. Hopefully if it ever warms up I should have plenty of weeds, err ah veggies.
 
Anything worth doing well is worth doing poorly first. Just look at this tiny ad:
