Rain Water

As I sit at the kitchen table dishing out strawberries to my kiddo, the rain is falling gently on the garden. I breath a sigh of relief as this means first nap-time can be used for something other than watering the garden! I have read and been told that gardens, especially tomatoes should not be “sprinkled”. The leaves get wet and this can cause problems. However….that is how God is watering the garden right now…seems like He probably knows best. For me, a sprinkler is definitely easier, at least of the vegetable garden. My hope in the future is to have to water less by using the stream in our backyard to form some kind of irrigation system. Any ideas on that? I also need to get some more mulch on the garden to reduce evaporation.

Hope all the other garden are doing well! I think Washington is taking a pause on summer the next few days, highs only in the low 60’s. Hopefully my tomatoes do ok, they are so sensitive to the cold.
