Too much rain

Flooded garden

Was I welcoming the rain not too long ago? We’ve been getting a LOT of rain the past 2 days. Too much! Yesterday was the worst, there was thunder and lightning, high winds. We tried pumping the water away from the garden but it was difficult to get the water from flowing back. I took this picture this morning. Now the rain has stopped and the sun is peeking through so the water is receding slowly. I have my cabbage, green peppers, jalapenos, zucchini and green beans planted at that end of the garden so I’m HOPING they survive.

There is a lot of water laying around. We don’t have as much as others, though. The forecast for the week is clear weather so let’s hope there’s no more flooding! And it dries up before the mosquitoes find it!

  1. Thank you, both. 🙂 The garden looks better today, though there is still water lying. They are forecasting rain later in the week, now. 😦 My son dug a ditch along the end of the garden and I think it helped but maybe we should dig it wider and deeper.
