Gardening in the NE Florida rainy season.

This is a 2009 pic of me in the garden during the rainy season. With Tropical Storm Debbie upon NE Florida, gardening becomes quite a challenge.

    You're not kidding! I just picked up 3 30 gal. bags of debris ripped from my neighbor's oak tree this morning, and a walk around the yard this afternoon suggests, after all the wind today, I have another 6 30 gal. bags to collect. We've had an interesting flood pattern here in the Tampa Bay area. How're you holding up over there?

    This storm has the potential to destroy my 'flower' garden. Yes. Poor Tampa--You got pummeled. Word is NE Florida is going to get hammered for up to five days with Debbie.

    We've had between 10 & 15" of rain over 4 days. Today was lighter rainfall, stronger more persistent winds..........all day long. What a mess! I have turned all my clay saucers over, so no water will sit. While the ground winds are there, they're nothing like the upper level winds. Protect your 'flower' garden from the wind, and make sure they can drain well, and I think you'll be fine..............barring any funnel clouds.

    Oh my. What am I going to return to? There was a drought when I left!

    We should be getting that amount in the next few days, Becky. My flowers are annuals so the beating rain just beats them to the ground. Their tender roots hate the wet soil and disease sets in. I am not very hopeful and miserable about it. New Smyrna should not be too bad off Doug. Of course Debbie is a big system so who knows...good news on the probable lifting of the drought in Central Florida!!
