Garden Flood

I know some people think I’m an expert gardener.  That I’ve done this before.  Truth is, I have no idea what I’m doing.  I’ve never done this before.  But I want to learn and I’m learning by doing.  Sure I’ve read a bunch of books, but I know plenty of things will happen that the books didn’t tell me about.  That is how I will learn, and get better, and one day be a good gardener.  Today was one of those days.

It rained most of yesterday and when I went outside this morning to get my Wednesday garden blog photos I expected that the ground would be muddy.  I didn’t expect to find 6″ of water in my cold frames.  Uh oh.  That is going to be a problem.  I should have expected something like this.  My yard is made up of clay soil and it doesn’t drain well.  Mostly all the water runs into the drainage ditch, which is why our ditch is so important.  But now that we added cold frames some of the water that was heading for the ditch fell into the cold frames.  And because the soil is hard packed clay, it can’t get out.  Now instead of filling those beds with dirt and plants this weekend I’m going to have to figure out how to install a drainage system.  Which is kinda funny since I’ve been trying to figure out how to make an irrigation system to make sure they get water in the summer.  Now I need two systems… one to keep the water away when it rains and one to give water when it doesn’t rain.  Gardens are hard work!  But I’m going to figure out how to make this work.  Bit by bit.  And clearly, I’ll never be bored.

    Anna Bruce Photography - You are doing WAY better than I did… I gave up on my garden pretty much last summer lol. This year I just want to do fresh herbs. I really loved my fresh herbs and stuff 🙂

    Douglas Mara - plant beans, sunflowers, dandelions stuff you don’t even want. what you need is pioneer plants to break up the ground with deep tap roots to break up the dirt and improve the soil conditions for plants you want (assuming you want more common plants like tomatoes), just throw in seeds and see what sticks….. if you think you can maintain the water you can use the clay as an advantage and try growing rice, clay should help make for a good pool (don’t know much of growing rice but all information I “know” is that they like very wet environments).
    what may also work in your area better is from permaculture, http://www.richsoil.com/hugelkultur/ once its gets going will need very little watering even in summer and if you plan it right you can flow water where you want it.

    Alicia Stanley - Dig down deeper and add tons of soil amendments. 🙂
