Rain came midweek, May 26, 27, and 28 – a most wonderful soaking rain. There was a brief afternoon shower on Saturday May 24, but the 3 days of soaking rain was the winner. Plants and young shoots springing from seed are claiming more space. I’m thinning out carrots, radishes, spinach, and lettuce which seems like a waste.

This week I’m deciding to move the green bean plants. They were not doing well with the cucumbers and beets. I transplanted them to the 18 inch diameter half barrel tub where the 3 melon plants died. They are doing much better, greener and healthier. The cucumber plants are growing and look healthier as well.
