I have planted about 40% of the area of my yard with grass-seed and in the parts I have watered there are sprouts. Several days of rain are forecast this week so I should have a good crop in a few weeks. It’s gentle rain, too, so no danger of the seed being washed away. I have all my seedlings out of doors now and most of the tomatoes and caragana are in the ground. In a few days, I should have my garden planted weeks ahead of the “normal” data of expected the frost-free season, thanks to global warming and el-nino.
The long-range forecast is looking good. The accepted “frost-free” data is May 24. Last year, I planted a few peppers about this time and had to water them all night a couple of times in May to prevent freezing.
