We've had a couple more rains but total accumulation was only 1/4 inch. It's still pretty dry. I hit the spout of my storage water tank with the lawn mower and caused a major leak. Since most of the 400 gallons leaked out, the tank has been drained in preparation to be repaired and cleaned.

There's a chance of rain today. We had a little shower yesterday but could really use more. It's starting to get cracks in the ground dry after three weeks of 90 degree scorching temperatures. Watering gardens are on the rise.

  Weed control
Terra Nova Gardens has many less weeds now. The parking area was mowed; the street bank was weed whacked; another area for sweet corn was cleared; and the front of the fenced garden area was weeded. Three pepper plants and one tomato plant were replanted.

  Yardwork
Heavy dew on the grass but it still needed mowing before the rain comes again. Many stops to clean the grass from the under side of the mower, made the job a little more time consuming.

  Time to garden
Finally, a day to work in the garden. I certainly have to take advantage of that. There's roses to plant and many vegetable seeds to plant. Of course much weed control to be accomplished. So it's time to get started.

Have a great day in the garden.

  Rain
It seems the rain cycle has continued into June. Gardening is definitely taking a hit this year due to the wet weather conditions. It's difficult to get any thing prepped or planted.

Nebraska weather is still undecided whether spring has arrived or not. Today another skiff of snow with the promise of more rain, freezing rain, or snow later today.

  Gardens are slumbering
Gardening is totally over for this year. All plants have been frozen by the sub freezing temperatures. Twice the temps have dropped into the teens which has killed even the most hardy plants.

I haven't been to Terra Nova for some time because winter finally made it to my area. The ground now is frozen which leaves working the soil out of the question. I can only continue to cut up the downed tree. I've discovered from neighbor's comments that the tree is a Mulberry tree and not a cottowood. I have the tree sectioned up but will need to farther cut the sections into chunks to be able move them better.

I have been researching a method of gardening called Hugelkultr. It's a German method of burying chunks of wood under about a foot of dirt and making a raised bed over the wood. It's supposed to increase the water retention of the soil and keep watering needs at a minimum.
