Yesterday it started raining about 9:00 AM, and continued all day and night. We were working the day before to prep these beds and get them transplanted before the rain came, because we had lots of starts ready in the greenhouse. We didn't get them all done though, so it meant getting up at the crack of dawn and running out to the farm to finish up before the rain came. We made it just in time, and got beautiful swiss chard, lettuces and lacinato kale in the ground.
