We have had about 31 days of rain out of the last 34 days, nothing like Texas thank God, but it has been near impossible to plant garden. I did get some things out about a week ago when it was just sprinkles. My lima beans sprouted a few days ago, then the heavy rain returned, washed them out and what didn't wash away are sprouting on top of the ground. Should I cover them or leave them be since they have sprouted ? I have no dry dirt, it's pouring rain again as I type this. I would have to use potting soil. Thanks.

doc9013- What's up? It's been wet here too! Just got taters in the ground a couple days ago. Looks kike we will have about a week of decently dry weather from today.

If it were me...I'd wait a day or two for the ground to dry out and re-till and replant with new seeds.

Take care.

We've got quite a bit of rain here in southern Pennsylvania also. I finally got 2 of my gardens in but the big one with the corn and pumpkins hasn't made it yet and I'm afraid it's getting a bit too late in the season for planting.

I finally got the garden planted. Had to re-plant the corn and beans, rain washed away the seeds. Corn is finally coming up. Gonna plant another row and some more cucumbers. I like to stagger the plantings so they don't all come on at once. Hard rain here again tonight.

Garden here is coming along great. :D Wife planted another row of peas along side the tomatoes hoping the tomats will glean some nitrogen from the peas.
