This week was the first week of May, which traditionally is when most of the corn is coming up and I start working ridiculous hours. It's the start of a long long summer working lots of hours and saturdays too.

But this week was not like that. It rained. For a week straight. We're supposed get a little bit more tonight but some areas around here have gotten 2-4 inches of rain in the past week. And it's been 60 degrees.

The corn looks like crap. And I got off work at noon today. Which I'm not complaining about, it's just weird. And I'm probably not working tomorrow either.

My garden isn't faring super well. The seeds I planted last weekend haven't done anything because it's terrible weather, especially for the sweet corn. The four cumin plants I transplanted despise cold wet weather and two of them were eaten by something. I put a chicken wire cage around the last two and seeded some more.

The tomatoes and peppers haven't really grown any more and the peppers honestly look kinda yellow and sad from the cold.

That being said, it's supposed to be in the 70s and with very little rain this coming week so I'm hoping that everything recovers. Including the sad yellow corn out in the fields.
