Rain - Too much of a good thing!!!   Empty Rain - Too much of a good thing!!!

Post  GloriaG 5/22/2015, 3:26 pm

Don't get me wrong - I LOVE rain!  We live in an area of Texas that, like many other areas of the country, has experienced significant drought for the last few years.  

But this year, things are different.  As of today, we've had 29" of rain, (we average a total of 34" annually) and have widespread flooding all over the area.

While it sounds like the extra rain would be great for the garden, it has been so persistent every week for the last two months that crops are drowning or are developing mildew, mold and diseases. 

Many of the local truck farmers, who provide produce to local farmer's markets have lost entire crops of onions, garlic, carrots, beets and tomatoes.  Some are supplementing their own crops with produce purchased from surrounding regions and some are falling back on crops like peaches that are holding-up well in the rain.  

For me; I've lost about 1/3 of my onion crop, all my swiss chard and am waging what I believe is a losing battle with mildew on the tomatoes. 

I'll survive, but I can't help feeling sorry for the poor in-ground farmers whose income is dependent on this weather!
