These past two days, Mother Nature has provided the Midwest with much needed rain. We have been pelted with storm after storm and it looks like today will be more of the same….but who is to complain. This year has been one of the worst droughts that we have seen in this part of the country in decades.
What does one do in this situation, make the most of the rain while it is here. Collect it in rain barrels with closed tops to keep critters and mosquitoes out. Weed beds between rain storms. Turn those compost piles. There is plenty to do on rainy days!
