    I'm going to lose my mind...

    Today was going to be gardening and work outside day because the temps are finally up!

    No. I checked all the national and local reports - it is supposed to be a nice day. No. No. No. No. No. Clouds are moving in and I hopped online to check the weather. Doppler shows a huge storm front headed my way.

    So I am back outside to rush to get stuff done...

    I held off planting until there were no nights below 50F in the forecast. Slapped the whole garden in last night in about an hour.

    That's just one benefit of no-till

    I'm hoping things dry up soon so I can chop some weeds. Most of our garden will not get planted this year due to being too wet. Living on yellow sand we don't get this very often.

    Raised beds don't help, Backwoods?

    I don't think it would work well. If you can't even walk in there now, what would it be like with ditches between the rows? We did have a neighbor try raised beds once in this yellow sand. That lasted exactly one year and they said it was more problem than it was worth. The biggest problem is that in yellow sand, moisture normally goes through it super fast and that is why it gets so dry so quickly. Normally at this time of year we are already having to irrigate in order to have any crop of any sort. It's probably only about once every 10 years that we have a problem but have never had this much of a problem as we have this year.
