Floating Garden

This is what part of our garden looked like after the deluge was over. I can't imagine living through something like a hurricane. We sustained some water in the basement as well.


Tomato plant ...


Onions ...

Celery ...



And green beans.
Later yesterday and again this morning, Andrew and David set up the generator and pump to get rid of the water.
Today was a very beautiful day, with lots of sunshine. Now it's clouding over and we may have a bit more rain. This has certainly been an unusual start to summer.

Wow, you DID gets lots of rain. Is there anyway, you could put tiling in to head down toward your lake?

Wow, we got a lot of rain but it didn't sit around long. Doesn't sound like it'll have a chance to dry out much either. Love your hoop gardens, what a great idea.

Maybe you should consider going into rice gardening!
We once got 11 inches of rain in five hours but since our garden is on a slight hill it did not become a pond but a river!

And it just keeps coming, doesn't it? Our beans don't want to come up this year. I think it's actually TOO wet.
