Up till now I've avoided complaining about too much rain. Knowing that next year will most likely be drought, I've been happy to see the ground get a good charge of water. But enough is enough already. It's time for a drying out break. Yeah, I love the rainbows, but I'm seeing them practically every day now when I drive to town.
The catchment tanks are overflowing, the ponds are full. I've had to take water out of the mini ponds so that the guppies don't get flushed out with each new rainfall.
The spiders are having a hard time of it, their webs being covered in raindrops.
I've been thinking in hindsight about what I should have done to prepare for this summer of rain. In the gardens I should have built a lot of pallet growing boxes. Those boxes are always well drained and vegetables grow great in them even in heavy rains. I should have gotten that hugelkultur bed built at the seed farm. The rain could have helped greatly in getting it established without having to cart water in. I should have built another catchment tank for the main gardening area. Next year I'm going to regret missing the opportunity. Oh well......just be glad I'm not the wet spider.
