It is good for the plants, at least that is what we've been saying a lot. Given that I haven't actually planted any plants this year, I suppose it would be more apropos to say it is good for the weeds. Did I ever tell you my Mom and I play a game I call "Weed or Not?" I take an phone photo of green things growing in the garden, and she texts me whether or not it is a weed. They almost always are. Sigh.
We are keeping dry. Mostly.
