Finally the rain gave us a break - see my rant yesterday here - and we finally got a dry day to do some work on the garden. Of course, the forecast calls for rain 6 out of the next 7 days again. Saturday looks to be dry as of now, and if so then we (Kate) may be able to get the strawberries in plus some plants around the yard.
We added 2 cubic feet of composted manure and 2 cu ft of garden soil to the east garden, closest in the pic, and 1.5 cu ft of the composted manure at the top of the west garden where Kate has put in a trellis for the peas, also planted this afternoon. We have 2 cu ft of garden soil and 1.5 cu ft of composted manure left over for adding later, saving for next year or using around the yard where needed.
