|A soggy, overgrown radish plant. I chop these and feed to the goats.|
This poor plant shows the classic symptoms of being water-logged:
- drooping, wilting, twisting, yellowing leaves
- soft sponginess at the base of the leaf
- rotting roots
Considering that we've gotten 24" of rain in the past three months with no time to dry out, I suppose it isn't a surprise. And this is in the upper part of the garden where the drainage is good. Our last rain was six days ago and I hoped the affected plants would perk up. Alas, they did not.
It's been sunnier for the past few days but colder. More rain is expected by the end of the week. Some things you just have to take as they come.
