This is officially (according to me) the wettest, darkest, coolest spring on record. My flowers and vegetables are just languishing around, too sopping wet to do anything but try to dry out. I've taken to putting everything under the eaves or tables trying to keep the rain off for a while. The lack of sunshine is making everyone crabby and depressed. Who would have thought you could get SAD (Seasonal Affective Disorder) in the spring?
I went to a couple of garden centers this week and I feel sorry for those owners. All the plants look sickly and drab. The Jersey strawberry crop is pretty much shot, and the corn may not be far behind. Mold, fungus, mildew--you name it; we've got it. Instead of singing "June is bustin' out all over," we're singing "who'll stop the rain?"
