A good rule of thumb is summer in Seattle starts on July 5th. That’s when our driest, sunniest, and warmest weather starts.
Well, after an uncommonly cold early spring, we’ve been treated to an uncommonly warm & dry late spring. Today was the first day in 4 weeks we had any precipitation at all, and it was just a few sprinkles. That means we’ve had to start watering our plants a lot earlier than normal. And as you know, nothing brings a three-year-old more joy than to go outside and water plants.
It’s just usually not the plants that get wet.
