One rain barrel is empty and the way things are going the next one will be empty soon. Good thing we have three viable rain barrels. It helps when we are only allowed to water two days per week (ok, you can water by hand more often).
Hopefully the rain storms will come to Dallas again before the weather heats up. It’s been a wet night here in Greensboro, NC where I am visiting our other office for a meeting tomorrow. I bet it will be beautifully green tomorrow morning. But no rain tomorrow night when I’m traveling back — the little commuter jets are too small for a good storm to be anything but scary. Hello barf bag!
Everything on the urban farm is doing amazingly well. I am looking forward to picking snow peas this weekend. And beets. And radishes. And of course plenty of lettuce, chard, and spinach. It should be a great photo!
Nerd that I am I read the latest issues of Urban Farm and Texas Gardener magazines on the plane this afternoon. Just haven’t had the time to catch up on my reading lately for some reason…
PS: If you haven’t watched this video, you really should. I promise it will be worth your time, whether you are a new graduate or graduation was ages ago:
