Ramblings of a "New American" Gardener

Water from the sky

So our brief, but heavy, thunder showers last week changed their duration. Instead of 20 minutes of heavy, deluge like, rain, it came for hours, over and over again.

This is the Lockatong Creek, a steep tributary of the Delaware River, well below our house and garden. It’s normally a docile trickle. I use it as a way to visualize how much rain has fallen.

It will be interesting to see how a garden of grasses and perennials fares.

Until yesterday, we (Upstate SC) had no measurable rain for 9 weeks and temps were above 95 nearly every day. I guess it’s a year of “pick your poison.”

We were in pretty much the same state before the thunderstorms started a few weeks ago.
