That's Enough, April

So, my plan for this upcoming weekend was to spread compost and till it under in the remaining Quad 4, and plant out EVERYTHING I have left (tomatoes, peppers, okra, beans, squash, etc.) but April has other ideas. Last weekend it rained for 2 days straight and filled up all the depressions in the yard with standing water and left everything a muddy mess. It was just starting to dry out when along came a torrential storm early this morning. Even though it only last a short while, all of the puddles are full again and there is a nice, swampy layer of water sitting on top of the ground as far as the eye can see.

I may still be able to plant the tomatoes and peppers because those rows are prepped and ready to go, but it's going to be a muddy affair. Maybe by early next week I can till? Ugh.
