We could get as much as an inch of rain on Friday and Saturday?! According to NOAA, on average we get 4 more inches in a rain year (which ends October 1st). We have already had 55.5 inches instead of the average 36. We’ve had enough. Please stop.
I realized that if I were to put a hoophouse over some garden beds so I could have dry beds in the spring, I’d have to dig some serious trenches to redirect water that would fall off the roof… that would almost be better for our 2nd garden, which is in a field that we can’t see from the house, and it’s a pretty wet walk to get out there in winter!
