I STILL haven't been able to plant yet! :x It has been raining so much lately that the ground is too muddy to plant! Today was really nice and sunny, but it didn't dry up enough... :roll:

A good hint nikki what i did was wait until the forcast said it was going to rain and then plant the flowers! Its saves water and you dont have to waste time watering them... That made it much easier when i had planted the garlic... I still have to plant my tomatoes and broccolli...

You could also use rain water to save water. We collect and use rain water for some things.

Last year we saved our bath water and poured it around trees and plants...we didn't use it on the vegetable garden, but it helped out the ornamental trees anyway.

I didn't want to find out...that's why we didn't put it on the garden :lol:
