Post  has55 on 11/17/2015, 11:24 am

My garden did ok with the storm last night, It rain hard about 3:AM. 

It broke some of my cauliflower and broccoli leaves. It knock the onions for a lulu . but the netting held up



the beets did well


so did the Kohlrabi 



the tabasco and the habanero pepper did well, but the bell peppers were knock to the ground and limbs broken off. It on the back side of this pepper plant, flat on the ground.

Good news. I also see that all those wood chips you spread have paid off. You can walk around the garden after heavy rains.

Great job building those covers, hass55! Mine sometimes end up in the neighbors yards after a good blow.

you're right. I just finish spreading the rest of the chips after I got the drainage set up completed. Since I live on the downward side of my street, I had to addressed water coming down the hill during and after it rains. This set up worked out well because the wood chip filtered the water , holds itself in place and let the water go thru the cinder block drainage at a nice flow, regardless how heavy it's raining. I can walk on it without bogging down. Before I put the drainage in, the water would accumulate in one corner of the wall becoming a small pond. so I had to open the corner so the water could flow out till I fixed it. it now done.

the main one is the "Tabasco" with some type of flowering plant to it's left for the bees. Can't recall it's name. behind it is two California Wonders bell peppers plants that  been flatten. to the far right of the picture, habanero.

This is a better picture of the storm damage to the plants and sending the onion for a lulu. I realized the netting blocks the imaging.

Glad you came thru it okay...!

I really like what you've done with the drainage.  That looks terrific.  Can I use that pic for my powerpoint?
