It rained the fuck out of my garden yesterday. A total of 100mm. By lunch today, no rain, but last night I put fertiliser on just before the last inch of rain.
Tomorrow I'll mow it down low. Those green shoots will explode out of the ground.
Gardening is mostly about timing. I could have done those two things - fertilising and mowing - two weeks ago and got fuck all for it.
