Mother Nature Has a Sense of Humor!

Got to love Mother Nature! We haven't had a lot of rain here lately and we had a pretty mild and dry winter.  It hasn't rained in a while here, just to set the stage.

I was given a bunch of onions to plant, this is my first year of planting onions, and I was told that I should plant them quickly before they dried out too much.  Ok, I figured I would plant them today as I was way too busy yesterday.  I go out into the yard with all of my gardening tools that I needed to plant these onions.  I start digging up the dirt and get a couple out of the huge bunch planted and what do you think happens all of a sudden? Yup you guessed it, it started to rain.

I got a couple more planted in the rain before it started raining harder and I came back inside figuring the rest will have to wait.  You are going love what comes next as I am sure you have had similar luck with Mother Nature.  I sit down at the computer to start some of my work online and well, now the sun is back out!

I don't dare gather everything up again to go back out, I am sure it will rain again today.  Yes, even Mother Nature has a sense of humor :)

  1. Planting onions in the rain sounds kind of therapeutic! We've had similar silly weather. In the last two weeks we've had beautiful t-shirt weather, rain, hail and snow.

  2. Hi Jessie's Art Gallery,

    It almost was, I was a bit concerned about getting to wet-it wasn't real warm when the rain started :) The weather here has been ridiculous too. No snow here, but hot then cold then nice then cool. It is like a roller coaster!
