The last few weeks have been a nightmare in the garden....30" of rain fell in 48 hours and then it's rained every other day since. Our garden has never had any problems with drainage before.....but it just couldn't handle that much that fast.......so this weeks garden update will not contain a breathtaking photo.....instead I'm gonna keep it real and share our devastation.............Mud past your ankles, wilted tomatoes and an opportunity to teach our boys more than just gardening......

|That's my son I affectionately refer to him as Hoss (you know Hoss Cartright from Bananza the TV show.) He refuses to be photographed for fear I'll post his picture, so we have all these pictures of him with things in front of his face...like Wilson from Home Improvement.......|
Despite it all everything else seems to be ok....In fact the squash is Jurassic and I should be canning pickles in a week or two. Thank the Good Lord it didn't all wash away!
In the next gardening post we'll be showing you how to put in a french drain. If you'd like to see how great everything looked before the flood
