Sick and Tired

Post  jamesindetroit on 5/30/2011, 6:46 pm

So, I think I have been lamenting the non-stop rain here in SE Michigan....And, I am now lamenting some more! The rain has waterlogged the beds so much that I think some of the seeds I planted a few weeks ago have been soaked to mush. Now only some of the seeds have sprouted and I have empty space.

Oh well, I guess this is a good opportunity to try my patience with succession planting!

Anyone else having problems with this forsaken rain!

yup, I am in southern Iowa. We have had so much rain and much of it coming down fast. I have my carrots I planted for Carrot week in a mess. One seed coming up in another square, some didn't come up. I think I have about 8 in one square, 4 in another and the lone one in my marigold square. Carrots have legs and walk!

This is the Pacific Northwest, where rain, drizzle, mist is to be expected. But, Cindilu, you've explained why I found two squash-like seedlings coming up in the middle of my Asian stir-fry mix. Will never know what kind of squash, 'cause I yanked 'em. Or does this mean the compost wasn't entirely finished?
