We've also had record rain. Had a loud wild night on the 4th of July and got 3 inches of rain in 2 hours!! A record for us. So I figured since God had watered I was obligated to weed and spent all day on the 5th scootching on my fat butt through the garden and then around the perimeter of the backyard perennial flowerbeds. It's amazing how much the grass has grown and the weeds too. Overrun by bindweed! Luckily we didn't get any water in our basement. Several storm drains plugged and houses on corner lots got water in the basement.

Plan on pulling weeds in the front yard tomorrow and getting the whole lawn mowed and weed-eated. Putting down some bug spray around the perimeter of the house as there are lots of spiders and strange crawly things in the basement.

The best cure for stressing is to count your blessings...and a long walk won't hurt either!

I like it that I did not have to water--but now we have the hot and sunshine back---I preferred the cooler---but it was too much rain at once---with the heat and sunshine, I will have to water the potted plants again---think everything else will be okay for a few days.

Very hard to get in the garden because of all the mud. The weeds have over taken my lettuce. I had a talk with mother nature telling her that an inch a week is just fine but at this point, she still isn't listening to me lol.

We've been getting rain just about every evening and several full days for the last few weeks. It's actually worked out ok because it's usually still nice when I get home from work, so I can walk or run or grill, or whatever, and then it rains later. Our grass is doing so awesome, filling in spots that had died :) Seems like a silly thing, but I have struggled to have a lawn full of grass since we moved here 5 years ago. We still have bare spots but it's never looked better.

The exact same thing happened here after the drought we had, it culminated in the Black Saturday Bushfires. The next year was one of the wettest for years, we had mud on top of mud, which was made worse because of burnt ground etc.

It will regulate itself in the next year probably, but I know what you mean, day after day after day of rain is just wearing on the soul, never mind the garden

It seems to be feast or famine with the rain here---definitely too much rain already and it is only July 2---one area near here got 5 inches of rain yesterday.

We are just shy of 11 inches of rain for the month of June. A new record in Philly. My garden is suffering. Lack of sunlight is really slowing down my tomato and pepper plants.
Only thing loving the weather is my squash and grapes.
I could really use a break from the constant storms so my plants can recover :(
