Great example of what happens when a site is not properly prepped before planting. The heavy rains resulted in extensive ponding between several of the raised beds on our smaller North field. The subsoil has a clay pan that we should of either broken up or avoided before building the beds. These rows run east-west and have some low patches where the water accumulates. Next time the rows would drain better running north south.
We have drained the worst away with deeper ditching so I hope we haven’t caused too much damage to the root balls. Standing water produces small garlic. Lesson learned…again.
