It's supposed to be spring but it doesn't seem to be a "happy spring".  It's been raining for days and it doesn't appear to be ending anytime soon.  We did have a couple summer-like days over the past week and I did manage to get a slight sunburn twice this year while sitting outside and knitting.
The local dandelions are growing wonderfully.  The grass is almost a foot tall.  The weeds in the garden seem to be doing better than the perennials and the local farmers haven't been able to plant crops yet.  
I have vegetable plants growing in trays here in the house and can't get them out to the garden since everything is so wet.  There's no way that we could till the garden to get it ready.  When will it end?  It might get to the point where we just get the plants in the ground and not worry about all that tilling.  
These tomato plants are getting to the point where they're going to be too big for the trays.  I've been rotating them daily to keep them from laying down trying to reach what little daylight we've been getting.
