Rain, Rain, And Also More Rain

Five inches in forty-eight hours, by the home weather station in the garden. (I love this thing SO MUCH. I cannot even tell you how much I love it.)

The rivers are all flooding, of course, but I'm on high ground, so it's just soggy. The thing of interest to me is how my growbag + water reservoir systems are holding up. All of them are as saturated as it is possible to be now and the tubs of water are overflowing. So far, they've done fine staying consistently moist during sunny days--now we see if they drown in the rain!

So far, most of them are holding up apparently fine. One bag, which is too shallow for the tub it's in, is definitely waterlogged (but that's one out of over a dozen, so not too shabby!) The two big chiapas-inspired growbag + barrel tubs are hard to tell, because the rain also pummeled a bunch of stuff flat, so I can't tell if the tomato starts are dying from drowning or just hammered down by hard rain. The peppers in the same tubs are okay. I guess we'll know in a day or two.

We close on Dogskull Patch next week. I am trying not to think about it for fear of jinxing everything and becoming a whimpering wreck.

Ooh your garden looks so lovely. Hope all goes well with it.


Wow! That is a lot of pavers!

Your sitting area looks great!
Our streams and rivers are running high up here in New York too.

More garden envy here!
We had a scary load of rain a couple of weeks ago, when all the snow melted from Stella and then it rained, but it's all good now.

I start to worry when I don't see a LJ post from you for an extended period. And I promise I don't mean that in a creepy way...

This looks nice. Send the rain my way, please!!

I don't know if you got my message, but I do have you on here as a friend. Please feel free to add me. :)
