Rain - Finally
We have received a couple inches of rain - the first real rain for the rainy season. What a lot of people don't realize - that it doesn't rain for months on end in Southern California. Our rainy season is from November to March or April. We received a couple inches of rain in Riverside, CA that last couple of days. Some parts of Southern California reached got 3-4 inches. That mean's I won't have to water my bulbs and plants for 2-3 weeks. The soil I chose keeps damp for a couple weeks. We will have to see how it holds up this summer with the longer and hotter days. I hope this is a trend and we get more rain before the end of April. After the End of April - It will not rain until the fall again. I haven't been out to my garden spot for a few days. Will be going out Monday - my first day off - to see what is coming up.
