finally, after waiting since last fall to
test the water catch/diversion i'd put in we
had a hard enough rain to test the high water
mark, overflow and the drain rate.
i need to raise one side by few more inches
and plug the drain a bit more. could capture
a few hundred more gallons.
still, for a first test it went well. the
garden that used to get all this water looks
good too. a few hundred square feet of space
reclaimed that will come in handy for more
veggies this year.
but best of all it means i can play in the
dirt some more to finish this project and move
along to the next project on the list.
the rain came at a perfect time too, i'd
just finished planting another round of onion
seeds and turnips. chard sprouts might be
washed out or non-recoverable in some spots.
have to scope that out later.
