Everything is bone dry. I am having to try and water a few of the beds with the hose, but there is no way I can water them all. Even the oaks look to be wilting.
I found a bunch of Amaryllis seeds still in the refrigerator and being I had nothing else to do decided even with the drought to go ahead and plant them. I weeded out my two small raised beds, then planted more Amaryllis seeds in them. I only had a small number of the seeds planted earlier to survive, I think the drought had a lot to do with that. I should have paid more attention and kept the beds watered better. Its always amazing to me just how few of my Amaryllis ever survive to reach maturity. I just sprinkled dozens of the seeds over the top of the bed then screened some compost and but a light covering over the seeds. I watered the bed good before and after planting the seeds. The cold weather might come before the seeds ever sprout, or we may not get any cold weather, so I went ahead and planted them.
