With the new hose in commission, I set a small sprinkler to soak the bean bed. Then I soaked the two newly flattened bean beds and planted one of them with more Fortex beans and a 3' home made carrot seed tape that I had left over from the planting on May 1. I'll be sure to check the moisture more often back there against the fence.
I decided it might just be time to set the timer on the automatic sprinkling system. Usually I run it manually until the weather really warms, but I do tend to forget if I've watered certain areas or not, so I decided to play it safe and set it to water twice a week, starting at 5:00 am this morning.
So it rained all night. I might have known.
My chore list has been put on hold for the day, or at least until the sun comes out.....if it comes out. My shovel, rake, 4-pronged cultivator and garden shoes are taunting me from just outside the patio door. I was really determined to finish edging the patio flower bed today. Not going to happen.
I've stuck to my chore list all month....all two days of the month, that is!
Chore List for 5/1
Chore List for 5/2

Rain, rain, go away. This old Granny wants to play....in the garden!
