It's Wet Up Here

Well, this area of the garden was our corn.  This area was also our beets and rutabagas.  This isn't just inches deep of water, but at least 6 inches deep.  I should have known better when I planted this field in the mud.  You might say I'm a bit discouraged about our gardens.

Peter heard today that last night we received 3 inches of rain.  That was on top of a bunch more we've received since Memorial Day weekend. 

I do know the Lord is in charge.  We do what we can, but the outcome is up to Him.   I'm sure glad it's not up to me.

I'm sorry Lynn. I will pray that your garden dries out quickly.

Amen Lynn, as frustrating and disappointing as it can be it truly is out of our control.

Praying it dries up for you and that everything in the garden just "pops" and produces like mad. I just finished planting the last seed crops( a small squash with a short germination and growth period,mangel beets for the animals and hulless oats( just a started patch for seed)

We too have had well... let see our rainfall totals for the month of May were almost 8" above normal and this month is looking to set records too. Problem now is to find a window of dry to swath the hay*sigh* PTL the pastures sure look great, best they've looked in 8 yrs. :o)

Blessings and prayers for you and your family,

We did not get to plant our garden - by the time it dried out I gave up on a garden this year. And it is now under water with the last 3 days of rain. Our pastures are flooded right now, the pigs are up to their ears in mud. . . I'm a tad down because of all the rain, but remind myself that it only takes 3-4 days of sun for it to dry out.
I was sure our culverts were plugged because our front pasture is almost 8 inches of water today, but I went and checked and it is rushing through the culvert. :(
What a wet year!

Hi Lynn, So sorry about the garden. Hope it dries up soon. But, I'm glad that you all are higher up than Minot! That is so sad what is happening to the town. Fortunately Adam and Valerie got out just before the flooding! Their family arrived here safely last Sunday morning! They get to stay until July 15th and then go to Calif. Will keep you and your family in our prayers for safety and prosperity in your homestead "adventure" ! Love, Elly Raper
