Replanting The Garden After The Rain

   After all of the rain everyone got last week we feel very lucky that we see green grass on out place, not water.  I hate mowing for 3 hours every week at least I had a yard to mow.
   The raised bed garden did not fare so well, but again, at least there is still a garden. Most of the plants we started over the winter & were doing so well before the rain did not survive. I lost my BIG Max pumpkin, the cukes that were 6" tall & starting to climb the trellis, cantaloupe & tomatoes. All that water even in a raised bed was too much.
   While Chickenchick & I were in town yesterday we made a stop to pick up more plants. We worked so hard this winter to start most of our own. I used it as a lesson for her to understand where our food comes from & it has been disappointing to have them in the ground & now have to replant.
   Tomorrow as soon as she is at school I'll get out & do it again, all the time thinking I am lucky to still have a garden & not be flooded out. There's more rain on the way Wed.
