How to garden in the rain?? We will be at market in the rain tomorrow until noon or beyond...

This salad bowl has Arugula, Chives, Red Komatsuna (mustard) and lettuces.
Luckily the rainy weather is forecast to clear up next week but until then you can get a salad bowl and eat fresh greens from it. The greens are growing super-fast in this weather! They can (and should) be left out in the rain and snow.
These make super gifts for Mother's Day!
If you haven't planted your other cool-weather greens, there is still time, but they may need some protection from the hot sun coming up.
Wait until your soil has dried sufficiently before trying to work in it or step on it. Compacted soil can be a long-lasting problem.
