A balance of rain and sun.
It has been a very interesting Spring, for the weather, and it has led to some beautiful flowers in full bloom. The rain has been plentiful and the sun has made its presence felt as well. There really haven’t been any days that are in between and simply just cloudy. Typically a yard/garden/lawn will need about 2 inches of water per week to be healthy. Water and of course the sunlight helps the process. Since we have had several days of heavy rain, and then several days of heavy sun, the yards/lawns have grown at accelerated paces. Instead of having a cycle of 10-14 days between mows, it has been closer to 7-11 days between mows. I personally don’t mind it because I enjoy a healthy green yard over a dried out brown yard any day. These beautiful green lawns make the pioneer valley very enjoyable to live in.
Keep the rain coming, and keep the sun coming too!
