Our water issues are not even a drop in the bucket compared to what poor Texas and Oklahoma are going through, but I will still complain just a little.
We got sopping wet dealing with gutter and downspout issues on the barn during the heaviest rain. Our clothes were plastered to us - so we peeled them off and took a shower. Funny that showering seemed the appropriate response to being soaking wet.
Todays’s deluge created a river through the garden and washed away much of the lovely mulching work the WWOOFers completed in the tomatoes yesterday. We still haven't been able to plant a large portion of the garden because it is too wet. The potatoes - see left of the tomato fences - look great, though.
