It's not just flowers that are in the garden. So far green beans, peas and cucumbers are in the ground. The planting has been easy because we're in the midst of a 2 weeks of nearly endless rain and clouds. I run out and plant at a less misty moment, then wait for the soaking rain. I haven't had to water yet, and likely won't have to through the end of next week.
Even better rhubarb and raspberries come around with little help from me.
