Rain, rain, go away!

Listening to the radio on the way into work today, I heard that Vancouver hasn’t had a day without rain since December 15! Of course, that includes every time we’ve had a drop of rain, even if that was the only drop that day. But still, it feels like it’s been raining forever. And the garden desperately needs me. (Or maybe I need the garden…)

I must be a true Vancouverite, because I’d rather have it wet and mild than cold and sunny. But the rain is probably the Vancouver gardener’s biggest ally – and our biggest winter enemy. The winter wet kills more plants here than does the cold.

What’s the weather doing in your part of the world? How does it affect your garden?
