I usually have a large garden, and this year was to be no different. I planted strawberries, peas, green beans, cucumbers, beets, carrots, parsnips, kale, salad greens, onions, potatoes, sweet corn, winter squash, spaghetti squash, zucchini, broccoli, cabbage, brussels sprouts, two kinds of tomatoes, 3 kinds of melons, and 2 kinds of peppers.
From June until just last week, we had no rain. We had to water daily and we still watched our plants wither a bit. Weeds grew just great while the plants didn't do so well. Last Wednesday/Thursday/into Friday morning, we got 7 3/4 inches of rain! Now there are many of the plants (beans, beets, carrots, cabbage, tomatoes, peppers) are dying because there's TOO MUCH water and the ground is still over saturated.
Fighting Mother Nature is not a battle I'm doing too good at.
