I learnt something about interesting about carrots today. Did you know that they are not an aquatic vegetable?
Nope. they're not.
The water table in our yard has just given up. I can't believe the amount of rain that we have already had, and the amount of water that just keeps on coming. Everything is sopping wet, our yard acts as a bit of a bowl so it all just comes flooding down towards us and then overflows and rushes through under our house. The chickens have a duck pond, there are buckets out under leaks in the roof, and the vegetables, well, you can see my poor carrot.
It's not all bad though. The fruit trees are fabulously happy, as are the strawberries. The banana trees are growing exponentially, and it even looks as though the eggplants are happy. And that's not something that happens very often here.
Next year I will put the carrots in a different type of position, a much higher bed for drainage and maybe even a little sand in the soil. So all is not lost, because today, I feel like I Learnt Something.
I also know that in a couple of months when it's stopped raining I'll start complaining and asking where all the water's gone.
