We have been getting several inches of rain the last couple of days, and it is supposed to rain the rest of the week. The backyard is flooding in spots, although because we're on a hill, we're in no way in as bad shape as parts of New England.
My new trees are in puddles, and I think I will probably lose them all. Damn that clay soil!
I don't understand it; there are three full grown standard apple trees living next door- how did they survive?
Well, I guess I won't start counting my losses until I confirm things; I guess I'm just trying to prepare myself for the worst.
Oh- and it's supposed to be in the thirties tonight, so I covered the one artichoke that's up with a water jug cloche. I hope it survives, as it's the only one of four that was acting alive.
Welcome to farming, huh?
