According to accuweather.com March rainfall totals for my area averaged 11.24 inches. Normal rainfall for March is 4.14 inches. After a lot of rainfall earlier this week, we are looking forward to sunny skies and warm weather this weekend.
We have some big plans for this weekend. We plan on assembling the three new 4x4 Square Foot Gardens. I am hardening off spinach and lettuce for planting under the SFG Dome.
Today we ran some errands and picked up the components to make Mel’s Mix to fill the new SFGs. We called ahead and thought we could pick up everything in one store, but they only had one bag of vermiculite when we needed four. Either they sold a lot of vermiculite in a short amount of time or the person who answered the phone was incorrect. They called another location for us to see if they had vermiculite in stock. They did, so we drove to the second store.
This store was crazy busy. As we walked in we saw people walking out with bags of vermiculite and hoped there was more. Luckily for us there was. While we were waiting in line to pay, another customer also picked up a few bags of vermiculite. The shelf was almost empty and we felt fortunate to purchase our bags. We loaded up the Jeep and headed for home. We will assemble the new SFGs tomorrow.
