All This Rain

Gardening in the rain.

Some areas are a little bit flooded, but yesterday afternoon the plants didn't look completely awful. Of course, it then proceeded to downpour again last night and might rain again rained again. A lot.

The plants in the photo above here are kale (with the ruffly leaves) and peanuts (with the bright green oval leaves.) The peanuts are growing underground and are in the end stages of forming so I'm hoping they don't rot!

We've just got to wait and see how things turn out.

Good thing I had some trash bags and grocery bags in my car for some rain gear!

We didn't stay out long, just enough to lay down cardboard to make new walkways between the rows and kill back the grass in an area where we are building a new row.

Hope the plants don't get too moldy and the new seeds don't get flooded out. We'll probably have to add more compost and re-seed all the kale, carrots, and beets we put in.

Pull through this torrential downpour, baby watermelon!
