More Garden Prep

Early Tuesday morning, around 1:30 AM, it began to rain hard. It didn't let up until sunrise. When I checked the rain gauge on my way out the door to work it had 4/10 of an inch in it. Because of the wet soil, I had to take a day off from working in the big garden. I didn't want to walk in the clay soil and compress it down. By tonight though, it had dried sufficiently that I was able to get back to work. I managed to level about 1/3 more of the garden and set out 5 more rows of dahlia stakes. Now it is really starting to look like there just might be a garden down there this year.
