Tropical Storm Fay and SFG
I finally had a chance to assess the garden today, since it hasn't rained today at all.
My raised bed gardens actually did quite well through Ms. Fay. I have tomatoes growing up a trellis on one leg of my garden and they seem to all have survived the 15+ inches of rain we received with no ill effects.
Most of my squares are empty because I am waiting on my (self-imposed) September 1 plant date for most of my crops. However, my marigolds are looking pretty beat up right now, as are my green beans.
The beets, turnips and radishes all came through well, as did the okra and green pepper plant. My green onions also look pretty good except that the leaves are laying down. I can see them trying to go back upright.
Not doing so well are the cantaloupe, watermelon and pumpkin, all of which lost most of their leaves. They were already a bit weak from squash bugs attacking them, so that may have contributed. My nasturtiums look awful right now, as well, but I think they will recover.
I haven't mixed in my compost yet, but will probably do that tomorrow, along with giving everything a small dose of organic fertilizer, just to make sure that Fay didn't leach too much of the good stuff out of my boxes.
I took pics today, but they are all very dark since we still have a good bit of cloud cover. I'm just amazed at how well my plants survived the onslaught of water. I posted pics on the Florida forum of the street flooding we had. At one point, our street was at least three feet deep in standing water.
