Gardener Blues, Can't pick, can't relax on this rainy afternoon.

wertach zone 7-B SCJuly 31, 2012

It's been raining all day, my cats are sleeping and content.

I can't relax because the okra, peas, pepper, and tomatoes need picking!

If I go out to pick I will sink up to my ankles in mud.

Tomorrow, the okra, peas, pepper, and tomatoes will be too big, too ripe, cracked and/or spoiled, everything will be less quality in some way.

I need to learn to relax and quit worrying about things that I can't control!

Maybe I should have been a cat, instead of a gardener! LOL

Maybe you should think up ways to share some of that rain with your thirsty Georgia neighbors. Can't seem to get a cloud to cross the river.

I second that thought... We just got a sprinkle here - maybe 1/4 inch. We need real R A I N.

Enjoy your wet!
