After so many dry weeks, we awoke to gently falling rain that amounted to 7.5 mm by 9.00 am. I'd been expecting it from the forcat, and so I'd planted some seeds in a new patch of prepared soil.
It was not the bet time to plant seeds, according to the Moon Calendar because plants that germinate at this time can be expected to have only weak and spindly growth. It's a difficult decision to choose between the ideal weather for planting and the Moon Calendar. I'll wait and see.
