So you wake up on a overcast rainy Monday after a rainy weekend and you probably don't really want to go to work. You console yourself by parking your car along the edge of a picturesque creek never thinking in a hundred years this would happen.
I'm assuming most of you have seen the reports on the heavy rain and flash flooding here in Toowoomba so I'm not going to go over old news here.
I have measured just over 300mls of rain here in the last three days so everything is beyond saturation at this point in time..
During yesterdays massive downpour (roughly 40mls of rain /hr for two hrs) we ended up with about 30cms or so of water running through the veggie garden and the back yard itself. I've lost half of my good composted, humus rich topsoil but a blessing in disguise is the weeding I've been unable to get to has helped hold some of the top soil together and stop it being washed away.
Although it's only early January I'm going to have to move on from a summer garden and start planning my autumn/winter garden. Though if the weather becomes I will still plant as much summer salad veggies as I can.
Cheers and soggily yours
