We took advantage of the gorgeous weather yesterday (it was 60 pretty much all day) to plant peas. (In a rare fit of restraint we did not take a million pictures of dirt.) Anyway, we’re totally out of practice and completely forgot to water the peas after covering them up. “Pshaw,” we said, “the soil was damp, they’ll be fine until tomorrow.” Well, it’s tomorrow and guess what? We forgot again.
And so it was that on March 10th — March 10th, people! — this phrase was uttered at Maple Hoo: “Don’t worry about watering, it’s going to rain tomorrow.”
