What to do in your garden in May?

Since we have had a few heavy rains, we have to wait for the soil to dry out some before we try to plant into it. Working soil that is wet will compact the structure of the soil (which harms things like root growth and water retention/ drainage). If you can hold a handful of soil, compress it in your hand and it holds together, and then crumbles apart when you tap the ball, your moisture level is just right.
