Yeah, we usually get too much rain or none at all. It never spreads out over a long period of time like you would want. Our sweet corn looks fantastic, the rest of our garden, not so much. I hope you don’t get flooded out. If I were you, I’d check for low spots beforehand and dig trenches where water can run away if need be. I dug a trench after the fact but probably could have saved the garden if I’d done so before hand. Of course, who knew we would get so much rain.
The fruit trees all look fantastic, growing like weeds. Unfortunately, the weeds are also growing like weeds. I have been pulling weeds out of my nursery bed with stocks the size of a quarter. I just had to take out a large Gala from Gurneys recently due to crown rot, which would be an accumulation of the heavy rains we’ve gotten in the past. I now have to get some spray and hit all the trees I got from Gurneys because their rootstock isn’t resistant.
I’d love to say the fruit looks good but it’s been hit pretty hard by bugs this year and the rain has helped spread disease like black rot and hindered good spray practices.
As if the rain wasn’t bad enough, it’s been storming too. The next 2 days have more storms forecasted.
