There is nothing like rain for the garden. I can water the garden with the hose, but the plants just don't respond as they do when it rains. Tonight it has been raining since 6pm and it should continue to do so all night. As far as I am concerned that is perfect.
The weather report for next week looks pretty spectacular and my plan is to plant the tomatoes and the rest of the garden starting next Friday: basil, eggplant, cucumbers, squash, melons, beans. I am sure that I am missing something. But I think you get the general idea.
