Come see Richard's gardenPosted Sunday, May 2, 2010, at 11:29 AM
Surviving and thriving in the storms
Besides the neat neat, healthy garden, one things stand out quite clearly to me. No puddling, or water damage. With the rains we have had this pints out good soil that absorbs the rain and lets it sink in, rather than heavy clay that holds the water or makes it run off.
I have to admit, I am a but envious. Out hillside gardens fared better than usual after I made some extra drain ditches, but I still had a row of soybeans and corn end up in the lawn. As I was scratching the soil mounds to recover the seeds, PITA thought I was FINALLY understanding why she dug in the dirt.
No PITA, I still don't understand your destructive attraction to my plants. Another potted zucchini bit the dust last night (I should say bit the mud). Apparently all the rain had her restless so she went in the greenhouse and helped herself to some entertainment. She had already un-potted this zucchini before, so it was in intensive care, but now.... it is gone.
