For the past month most days it's been heavy downpour. Usually I don't mind the rain except for the fact that it let me know that my garden is on a slight slope and the bottom half of the garden was under water with my garlic being flooded in the process. It's still alive amazingly enough and we've dug a trench to keep most of the water out but we are seriously going to have to rebuild the garden when it gets warmer out. Maybe do it in a box garden fashion.
I wish I knew I was going to run into this sooner.

whenever my beds started doing this, i repeated made the mistake of trying to start over, raise the bed, add drainage, then I got smarter, I planted lilies, elephant ear, canna, things that liked to stand in water. Life is much better now.

ooooh i like that idea putneyroo. I really shouldn't buy more stuff though to plant. I've exhausted my budget on that. we are planning on doing some kind of drainage thing. But if I can talk my husband in letting me buy more stuff for the garden.............
