Rain – not always a good thing

42015_fj_gullywasher

One of the advantages of having raised beds, when you live on the side of a mountain, is that when it rains 3” in 12 hours, the tons of water that comes off the mountain goes around your growing area instead of over it. Unfortunately, they diverted the water across David’s future bean patches.

David has been covering his future onion bed with plastic sheets in an attempted to keep it dry. His onions are out growing their current home. Hopefully, this will help.

Because its pollinator was killed last spring, a late Arctic Blast, we decided to take out the Carpathian nut tree, it has yet to produce, and replace it with the Bartlett pear and Stanley Prune Plum.
