Anyone else worried about too much rain?

Post  BetsyC on 5/22/2012, 10:19 pm

My little SFGs look mighty waterlogged. I am grateful for good, much needed rain, but my smaller plants look like they need a break- they're flopped over and haven't grown much lately. Anyone else worried?

You could send some of that rain down here! Our drought is so bad I'm thinking I better go ahead and get the soaker hoses, because our rainy season, isn't...again.

They'll be fine, as long as you mixed your MM accordingly according to Mel you can not over water MM. How tall are they? You could always throw a bucket over them!

At times I do worry about the heavy rains (we've had a couple heavy storms in May).

I found some mushrooms in my garden the other day and can't help but think that's a sign of too much moisture. Everything seems to be doing fine, though.

not at all...

I was thinking the same thing, and then went out to the garden to check out the plants, and THEY HAVE DOUBLED IN SIZE, in one week. They are loving the rain. I think plants grow better with rain water than they do with tap. Maybe your little sprouts are just taking a break, try putting a bamboo skewer next to them to give them a little support. Gotta love those little guys.

Thankfully here in the UK the last five very wet and cold weeks seem to have stopped/ slowed .

Plants are starting to actually grow instead of head towards the compost bin Wink

Temps are in the high seventies ( 25 oC ) today ..had the humidity been high we would have had to spray against the likelyhood of blight in the glasshouse and on the potato related crops .

rain

Post  memart1 on 5/23/2012, 9:39 pm

Here in northeastern Pa. we have had a lot of sun with occasional scattered showers. The problem is the scattered showers are not at my house. My friend five miles away got soaked taking her groceries in , but I didn't get enough to even wash the dust off my hands. Of course we expect rain for the holiday. LOL
